Update, fry are doing well. I swear I can see growth already haha

I like to take guess at the sexes from really young ages. So my guess left to right is male, female, female (basing my guesses off head profiles)

gah just as i bring the wee little ones home my jd and larger sysns look like they want to do the humpty dance (that reference may have just aged me haha)

maybe the little ones got their hormones raging haha

note*not the best quality pics but I’m positive my larger syns is a male (even thought he has yellow eyes) and is trying to show off for my female jd.

One of my juvies has been attacked or bumped into something causing damage to its forehead. Crappy pics below, glass is dirty and water change day is tomorrow.

I usually use some stress guard during injuries, I usually am also impeccable with wc too. Are they skittish? Might of rammed into rock or wood in panic or fish-to-fish aggression m/f etc. I would at least do wc's 2x as often.
