    Side views of some of the lovely broadtails and veiltails! The length of fin and tail on these guys at their young age is amazing! I cant wait to see what they will look like in a few more weeks!

    Time to move the babies to a new, bigger tub! Into the 100 gal they go!

    ?

    That first pic is not where they were living, just the transport bucket. I dont think I would have been able to raise them to that size in a 5 gal bucket regardless of water changes...

    Hahaha. No, I didn't think you were raising them in the 5 gallon bucket. I was just saying that,yes with that many, they do need more room.

    Happy Fishkeeping, Jim.

    Such pretty babies. I hope to get my two kirin butterfly telescopes to spawn soon. They are far too stubborn.

    Not everything has to be perfect. It's not like you have 500 irregular fish you're keeping because of their markings. One or two isnt going to hurt, and you can always find a home for him/her. It would also make a nice pond fish and if you don't have one, there's your reason.

    Happy Fishkeeping, Jim.

    These two are my current favorites and likely keepers. I'm keeping 5 total so I have a bit of wiggle room.

    This guy is one of the biggest of the bunch and has a gorgeous tail. His eyes are developing symmetrically. He hasnt started changing color yet and I'm excited to see what lies underneath. He's a very active guy and hates being corralled for photos.

    This one is also a big guy. He's a lovely solid white color and has a nice tail shape. His eyes havent started developing yet. He's a bit more docile than the other guys and always sits nicely for pictures

    lol I have one that has the cutest black tom selleck mustache. I am sad that he's going to lose it cause it would be super cute. Part of me is hoping there is a red one underneath.
