I have my fry grow out thread already, but I wanted to show a side by side of Olivers baby pic next to his son.
Of the five this is the obvious dominant male. Over the past week his colors have exploded. I just wish I could have gotten a picture in better lighting. I think in another couple weeks the orange on his tail will be thicker too.
He is going to be hard to let go of.

Looks great. Your fish grow like weeds.

I don't think I could let him go in your shoes. Time for a new tank ; )

My oldest spawn is from mid May I think and only one is over an inch with most still around 3/4" (estimate). The big one has really been pounding food lately and growing a lot quicker, but these rest are not heavy eaters.

Thanks:) They have been growing pretty well.
This batch is from May 9th I believe. Give or take a day.
The fry from another spawn currently in the tank with Greenie is already 1/2" at least. They are growing quicker then these guys I think. Both groups of fry will eat as much as I'll feed them, but I only feed 2-3x a day right now.

My husband was just joking with me today saying maybe we need a bigger tank since Greenie has been putting up such a bratty attitude lately. I'll be looking to rehome some plecos since she has decided she hates them. Ugh, such a pain in the butt.... but I love her.
I told him I could never say no to another tank! :)

Do you have any pictures of your fry? I'd love to see how they are coming along.

I really need my 2nd 125g up and running ASAP so I can SSS (snag some saum). Still waiting on getting a background cut so my tropheus can be moved back into their main tank.
