    Hi, It's been two weeks since we received our 6 fry. We lost one after two days, but the rest seem to be thriving and growing nicely.
    They're currently in a 12g BB (once big enough they will move into our 90g). We do 75% water changes weekly, Ph 6.5, temp 84F. Feeding three times daily frozen brine shrimp and blood worm mixture with Kent's garlic along with Australian black worms.

    Looks like they've done some serious growing since they arrived. Good luck in the contest.

    Just a quick little update. Our remaining 5 fry are still going strong, you can see a difference in them weekly! This past week we have noticed that the tips of their fins are starting to turn red, so that's super exciting! I will post updated pictures in a couple weeks

    I had some free time today, so I managed to get some pics during feeding time. If you look closely you can see the red starting to show up on some of them.
    Since our first update we have moved our fry into our 90g BB. We still only do one water chage weekly, but do water tests daily. The temp in this tank is 86F, they are fed 3 times daily and Ph stands at 6.5

    Very cool to see that red colour showing up already. Looks like they are growing nicely.

    I'm not sure how I missed this update before. They are coming along nicely. I like the one in the second photo.
