The babies are coming up on 2 weeks old this weekend..I haven't lost many at all maybe 6 total that I've pulled out..This is a huge spawn! They are all eating and growing up very well..

Here is a shot of one of my cuties today..They are showing beautiful mustard gas coloring at a very young age...

Oh man! How much did I miss over the holidays! haha

MM, your babies are always so cute! It's nice to be able to see the pictures. I love the little guy or gal in the last one. Such a cute expression!

I have only found 4 dead ones so I'm going to guess 100 plus are still alive at week 3....A little overwhelming for sure...I'm going to have to move them to the 25 gallon grow out tank soon because of the volume of fry....

Here they are at 3 weeks old...And yes Shawnie, the ARE Chubettas! lol

The babies are approaching 1 month old.....Things have gone much better than I could have dreamed of...They are healthy little buggars...I still have almost all of the original spawn alive! They are showing beautiful MG coloring at a very young age....They are eating me out of house and home right now lol....

Here is one of the little guys at 4 weeks...

Great pictures. Great explanations. Great job. I can't wait for some more updates on the babies and some more pictures as they age. This is a very enlightening blog/thread and you did a wonderful job with everything.

I moved the 1 month old babies to the toddler grow out tank yesterday...Wow, what a lot of work that was lol......There are 100's still alive! I have never seen a spawn this size at this age before.....Not sure what I did differently if anything to make them all live this long...

Here are a few of the cuties...They are coloring up nicely...Some are the deep orange/aqua like Daddy and others look more like Mommy.....
