    Banggai Babies First Birthday!

    OK - it's only their first month, but I'm pleased as punch.

    They're still taking only freshly hatched baby brine shrimp, swimming right past any frozen Cyclop-eeze. They continue to grow, tho' I'm going to have to move them out of the 10 gallon soon.

    As you can see from the attached pix, they're about 0.5cm in body size (excl. fins) - sorry about the flashback on the metal ruler!

    That's something else being able to keep them alive and have them thriving. Neat school too :thumb: :thumb:

    They are adorable! Are you going to keep them all? I bet they will be best friends because they've been raised together! Very Cool!

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    nice job on the baby.They look nice.I will bet you fed them brine shrimp right from the getgo ???maybe thats why they wont eat nothing else.When I bred discus I would change the fry food daily so they didnt get too picky.As we all know how picky fish can get after awhile.SOme of mine wouldnt eat anything unles they were likve blood worms.And yes I lost one or two cause they wouldnt eat nothing else.But congrats on your cards.

    Volitan:

    I scooped the babies, newly born, out of the 120G (where the parents are) and put the babies in a 10G where I grow out mushrooms. and also quarantine new fish.

    FYI, the other fish in the 120 would eat them.

    When they grow large enough, Daddy Banggai would pick fights with any of the baby males (it's about the only true way of sexing the fish, too).
