    February update:
    These guys have done quite well up to this point, and have grown quite a bit since the last post. The largest is ~3.5", with the rest just slightly smaller. Going to move them into a 36" tank next weekend, they've quickly outgrown the 20 gal. Colours are brighter and more defined, the colour enhancing FDBW really brought out the red markings. Looks like the one in the first pic will grow up to be somewhat naked - fairly plain looking compared to its siblings.

    Fish are looking good. The color enhancing FDBW sure is amazing isnt it?! Seems as though your fish have a much darker base color to them than mine do. Do you have any of the tank sides painted?

    I have white shelf liner on the sides and back of the tank, but I left the bottom glass as is. The tank is sitting on a black stand, so maybe the darker base colour is a result of the dark bottom. When I move them into the larger tank I'll give them a lighter coloured bottom glass to see if it makes a difference.

    Almost forgot my March update! Moved them from their 20 gal into a 30 gal a few weeks ago. Looks like they're about 4" now. Two of the larger ones are starting to get a bit aggressive to the rest of them, but they usually calm down after a while. For the most part they are all doing well and getting along fine. Here's a quick video clip.

    Fish are looking great! What type of filtration are you using on the 30 gallon?
