    So today my little group of fry are two weeks old! I figured Id share how they are doing! IMG_20170606_112359848_TOP.jpg
    First off there's mom. Her name is Phantom and I bred and raised her myself IMG_20170606_112339852.jpg
    There's ONE of the dads to the fry. This is Ember. IMG_20170612_204244777.jpg
    The other dad. Group spawn. This is Galaxy. Also mom in the background. They don't hold still :p
    The eggs took about 3 days to hatch. I started seeing fry May 30th.

    2 days old and sooooo tiny. Got baby brine shrimp cooking in the other room IMG_20170606_112656277.jpg
    One week old. Such a difference! IMG_20170612_210704601.jpg
    Here they are today at 2 weeks old and they look like little fish! Dumb me forgot to put salt in the brine shrimp hatchery last night so they got their first gel food and I think they like it. They get 80% water changes every other day. I'll be bumping it up to everyday here shortly.

    The fry will be turning 4 weeks old here on Tuesday. They are doing remarkably well. I did a cull and sorted 24 more that will be sold for "pet grade" IMG_20170621_140817398.jpg IMG_20170624_192414305.jpg they have learned that I am source of nommy food!

    I lost about 6 so far. It's so hot here today and the tank is heating up with the temperature. 3 of them didn't like that.
    They are in the process of being nice and bomb proof :p

    Pardon algae water. These are my pet grade babies that I will have for sale here in about a week. They are 5 weeks old. There weren't many flaws with them. They simply weren't catching up with the others in growth.

    Common x shubunkin. I'll sale the rest at some point when they are 4 months old. Now this is all depending on if I get a job soon. I would also like to see where they will go so pictures of the pond or tank. Since commons are usually mistreated

    I'd like to know if you could send me some fish so I could get some experience with breeding

    Here are some of my keeper fry today at 6 weeks old. They are being fed bloodworms, gel food and frozen brine shrimp. Water changes are 100% every other day and they have 60 gallons worth of sponge filtration. IMG_20170711_134125117.jpg
    Here are.the pet grade fry. They will be up for sale once I manage to not get denied a job otherwise I will have a local fish store take them. There are no real major flaws however these guys just weren't catching up with the others so I separated them. They eat mainly gel food.

    Fry during their annual every other day 100% water change. 7.5 weeks old. Some of them are coloring up alot earlier than I expected. They are also breaking that inch in length IMG_20170717_174215867.jpg
    This one has become one of my favorites. I have been calling him or her patch.

    Beautiful babies. And a great breeding experience. I hope to get some matte shubunkins soon from Gary Hater so I can try my hand at breeding! :D

    8 weeks old and a boat load of color changes. Still doing 100% water changes every other day. I'm really happy with how these keepers turned out. I have about 65 left.

    I have been failing to keep up with the forum lately due to this employment thing that gives me money to buy fish things. My fry at 10 weeks old. They have all pretty much changed colors though there are still wild type looking ones. No losses what so ever in the past few weeks or even in this spawn. No disease nothing. Im considering this spawn my lucky spawn

    They really are. Of course there are all solid orange ones too.
