I had two clutches that were poorly fertilized. First time hatching btw. Many hatched in the main tank before I removed the clutches and hatched the remainder in a breeder box. Some def got eaten (we saw a shrimp grab and eat one off of the glass one morning and I was able to suction out 7-9 over a few days). I think between the two there were initially 30ish live babies. That is down to about 12-13 now. Don’t know why so many didn’t make it. Anyway, of the remaining 12-13 the sizes are insanely different! Some look like they stopped growing weeks ago while about half have gotten nearly big enough to move to the main tank. Will those smaller ones just always be small? Or is just widely varying rates of growth? Also is it strange that they are all entirely golden when dad was not gold? The fish shop thinks dad is a purple/gold mix and that gold must be dominant. The ivories he said are likely just albino goldens. Oh and the two clutches were laid about 6 days apart.
