    Spawn #2 hatched out on 11/12. They have been growing like crazy, much faster than the first spawn (thanks mainly due to MM and her advice!) and eating like pigs. These are the parents, new fry pics to follow:

    Here are the little ones! MM, have I cut down on their food enough or do they still look overfed?

    That pic isn't the best! She is a little stressed today because she just got moved to a bigger home..not quite sure of things yet! She has a few nips still healing but nothing to terrible I chose that pic first cause it actually shows some of the blue in her tail...this one doesn't show the blue but she looks better here! I took both of these today after the move.

    Ooooh, BABIES!!!!!! So jealous of you right now. Their daddy is gorgeous! He looks like my Teucer used to. Wonder what their colours will be like when they come in.
