HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
YAY! All nine babies made it to 2 weeks, DAY14
This will be the last day we start out with Liquid Fry for breakfast!
The only reason I fed it today is because of the 2 laggers in development, but it is hardly sustainable for the bigger babies.
Our new menu will be:

6 AM Hikari Rotifers (frozen)
9 AM HBH Fry Food
12 PM Baby Brine Shrimp(frozen
3 PM Hikari First Bites
6 PM Hikari Rotifers
9 PM Baby Brine Shrimp
12 AM Vitaline
Treat: Spiralina some time during the day.
Alright so we made it to Day 14 which is a new milestone and the babies are starting to "chase" each other a bit and swim in a small school now, at times, which is really cute to watch.  I hope they continue to grow fast to the next milestone which I think would be 1 month!
Pictures to follow later today! Smiley

CONGRATULATIONS and 

HAPPY 2 WEEKS BIRTHDAY[/b]

been without internet for 2 days as the storm damaged the router, had to get a new one. But everything else is ok and I am glad nothing more happened with hailstones about 2cm in diameter...

Have to catch up with lots of reading on here  Grin and Minde you are awesome, phantastic, an excellent and exemplary fish mom. I thank you for sharing this adventure with us, I'd like to give you thousands of Karma at once if that would be possible.
I enjoy every single post in this thread, besides it is so informative it is also so much joy to follow up.

Haven't got goldfish fry yet, but I better be prepared one day it will happen. I'd say Humphrey, Hepsiba and Skippy must be about 1 year old, maybe a tad too young yet....

DAY 15

AMAZING!!!
It is now day 15 and I never thought my babies would be alive this long....Yes it is time consuming...Yes it is tiring....yes it is hard work...BUT so worth it!!
Some of the bigger ones look like little fishes now.  They have a dorsal fin and wider caudal fin.
They are so cute as they swim like regular minature fishes. Smiley
I plan on moving them to the the 15 gallon aquarium by their third week.
Picture to follow a little later. Smiley

Minde this is such an exciting journey.
I must tell you that at the moment this thread id the first I look at when I'm back on here.
I cannot wait to read all the beautiful news and the progress.
I believe there will be and already is a special bond to you with those little wees as they sure already developed a full trust in you.

Cannot wait to see pics Grin  Kiss

HA!  Well I thought I would put a marble in their tub so you better get an idea of what size they are. Smiley
They were scared of that foreign round ball in their tub and avoided like crazy!! LOL!
So couldn't get very good pix this time...sorry!  Tried for 20 minutes and then just gave up! Roll Eyes

They're still oh so tiny, but I can see by the photos that they are growing fast Smiley
The chances of them all surviving looks pretty good now eh? Cheesy

It's funny how they know what is food and what isn't. They are actually bigger then I thought they were. I was telling mum about your baby fishies and I keep meaning to show her the photos. But her reaction was like "What if yours have babies  Shocked ?!!?!?!?" Haha  Cheesy

Great idea with placing the marble beside them for size comparison. Oh they are just perfect little babes ♥ hope none of them had hangovers from partying it up yesterday with their fortnight shindig Wink Ya know, marbles would work well in an aquarium as decoration!

Are you going to leave the marble there now? They'll probably get used to it eventually and then it'll be easier to see what size they are Smiley

DAY 16

Here we are and it is Day 16.
Yes, they are still tiny, 1/4 of an inch or a bit longer with the big ones maybe.
Yesterday they were so fat!!  Stuffing themselves with food again so I imagine another growth spurt is in order.
Something very funny is when I put the cup in the water they actually swim into it. LOL!
Omg 16 days old and they know a trick already!LOL!
I don't have to chase them much, as they are probably very tame from me always sticking my hands in there.
They probably will get use to the marble.  It's so funny they swim towards it and then make a wide arc and swim away. LOL!
Such funny little buggers. Smiley
Ok, pictures to follow later.....

LOL, Minde,

yes, they are tiny, tiny but so sweet and of course we can imagine the real size of them.
Sounds so lovely how they come to your habds, as I mentioned in another post on here, they already developed a special bond to you.
I believe this is one of the best Xmas presents one can have  Cheesy

Aww it's almost like a comedy I imagine to watch them when they see that big white cup coming at them. "Ok everybody, all aboard, next stop fresh water and more delicious food!"  Grin Hanna said it best their bond is very special, so happy for all of you  Wink

lol. oh minde they so sweet. i agree on the bonding thing. i have only had these babies i have for a few weeks (but they already almost 3 and half months) and if i lay my hand gently on side of tank they all swarm to it. yours will be even more bonded since you mommy from start and saved them from their other mommy with the munchies. just wait yours will be following you around soon. they grow so fast. can't wait till my ranchus breed so i can go through it from begining.

Thanx Aimee,
If your ranchus ever breed you should maybe keep a diary.
I can't believe how these guys change everyday.
It is utterly amazing! Smiley

DAY 17

WOW! I can't wait to take pictures later today!
I just hope I am able to capture how advanced they've become developmentally.
How they have cute little dorsal and pectoral fins.
How much they have grown in length just since yesterday!  They are longer than the marble now!
even the "lagger" is growing a bit.
I saw them poop for the first time, yesterday!
I know they pooped before but now I can see it!
They are shinnier, so they must have tiny scales starting to develope?
Their little bodys have a glint, reflective look under the flashlight now. Smiley
They look like they are in need of a bigger home.
I've chosen a 15 gallon tank to use, it is a long tank.  I think it will work fine, but I'm scared they won't be able to handle the filtration yet!
I have a sponge filter but am afraid that they will be sucked into the sponge.
I think I have to wait one more week and then they will be ready for sure.
I will post pictures later this afternoon!
