Yesterday I did a big water change, although the water parameters were perfect and treated the babies with full strength Start Right.  When they were just tiny fry I treated their water with half strength.  I went to another forum and they told me to stop using it but I had read that it helps prevent finrot and fungus which babies are more likely to get.
If you look at the second picture closely you may be able to see the bit of fungus on the babies tail.
This morning there is no fungus present so the water treatment full strength start Right worked.
I'm so glad because I really didn't want to treat with anything stronger since they are still so young. Smiley
Anyway, I think the color food is working because the biggest baby is starting to look peachy colored! Cheesy

Well I've been at it again... Wink
Found 8 tiny goldfish which I have been hand raising for 4 months.
One is not growing very well and is the runt of the pack.
He might not make it but I am giving him a fighting chance.
Recently, I divided the babies into 3 different tanks.
I found Plankton, spirulina, krill flakes at Kensfish.com, which is a life saver because the place where I get the frozen plankton and baby brine shrimp from closed down and we don't have any frozen fish food near us.
And to have it shipped is just outrageous in prices.
The new babies are very cute, 6 are mostly gold with a little white on them and there are 2 white babies with blue eyes.
Remember those first tiny babies I raised?  Well these new babies are the off spring of one of those goldfish original babies I hand raised from this diary.
