Some clearer photos today, collected a couple for a close look at development. Fed frozen daphnia today and they really liked it

The people in Ontario are lucky - one day you will sell them and that will be their opportunity

Ive got a second spawn today.

Again, on a floating anubias leaf, and a cold front moved through last night. Seems to be the consistent factor.

Not the happiest of updates.

The 2nd batch totally fungused over, despite alder cones and almond leaves.

Had a lot of smaller fry fail to thrive of the first batch, only one really grew, and ive lost all but that one large sibling.

Hes been moved to one of my smaller community tanks now to finish growing until he's large enough to join his parents.
