There really was a party in the ship wreck.....

WE HAVE MOAR BABIES !  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

Blacky was hidden the whole day 3 days ago, nowhere to be seen, Ginger was hidden yesterday, nowhere to be seen. Today there are again those tiny glass commas swimming around in the moss, just that one can identify them as long as one knows where and what to look for.  Grin  Grin

The other babies are now good 2cm big and show different colours.  Cheesy

Are they ever sweet little fishies Hanna! What a nice setup they have too Smiley all those lovely plants to play hide and seek in!

Nossie do you have one of those bioOrbs? if so what size, how many fish are in it, and how would rate the tank? Been eye-balling them online and a friend has many platties, danios and neons that have had babies so he's offered some to me Cheesy

Mr. Tailer: I've got one, yes, I got it for birthday last year Smiley Kept three fantails in it for a few months and noticed that it didn't really work that way, so it was serving as a quarantine tank later ;> It's an 8 gallon (30L) and I was seriously thinking about putting some smaller fish there, like guppies or something Smiley I don't know if tetras would like it since I haven't found a heater for this available around here xD Other than that, I think you should really use your own maintenance schedules when getting this tank, because the booklet that comes with it says that you don't need to change water any more than every 4 weeks |: And the ceramic "pebbles" on the bottom are pretty hard to keep clean, but once you do, (with weekly 50% water changes) it's really beautiful and cute Smiley
Maybe get the 16 gallon if you want one! Smiley

LOL fantailer, they don't , I've got them both in the tank and fresh guppy fry looks very different to fresh platy fry, not in size but in shape.
Not that much around their head, but the body. Guppies are much more slender and Platies fairly compact.

PRIEST is growing well, lol

Well baby goldfish look like straight pins with eyes, but now I think they look more like new born baby guppies.

Yes, could be...  I wanna be fair, perhaps if one only sees only one species fry at the time they may look the same...  Wink

but if you have em just next to each other one can really see the difference, also in the meantime your eyes get trained to recognize it straight away  Wink
