Hello
Thought I'd drop by and visit you again. Sorry to hear about the cherry shrimp. Endlers are very nice fish, so you will probably enjoy them. I left you another vote too.

Come visit me, PectorAL.

So I haven't updated in a while...this is now Merlin the betta's tank and he has 2 Endler's for buddies. The cherry shrimp didn't last long. They're too expensive to try again for a while.

Shrimp!
Cherry shrimp are still doing good. Some molting has already happened, but no shrimp eggs so far. I reeeeally hope I have both males and females and will get some babies soon.

Cherry shrimp
I finally purchased 5 cherry red shrimp today for the Spec. Wish me luck at raising these cool little guys!

Babies
Over the last 2 weeks, I've moved most of my platy fry into the 20 gal. I started by moving the 4 biggest, and then I'd do a few more, and a few more. A couple were lost - one had a crooked spine and I don't think it was a strong enough swimmer to get away from the filter intake :( The other fell victim to the adults. Otherwise, I have 13+ super cute and happy platy fry doing great with the adults. The big fish don't even seem to notice the little guys anymore. I have 4 platy left in the Spec. One is from the same brood in the big tank, but he/she is a little smaller and distinctly different in color - very yellow with black on her tail. The other 3 were from a separate birthing and are too small still.

Anywho, it's pretty exciting to see all the little fishies doing well in the big tank, and what's also cool is I'm pretty sure the darker orange ones have my male fish Speckles as a dad. He's a red-tail dalmation platy, and the babies are developing spots! From the moment I got him, babies are what I've been hoping for.

Hello
Just dropping by to ask how are your babies coming along? Are they getting big? What color are they?

Welcome!
Wow, I really like this tank. The light beams behind it are very attractive. You have done a good job decorating it. I also like the black gravel, these tanks just look great! Welcome to the fish channel, and I am certainly leaving another vote.

Come visit me, PectorAL.

I've counted 18 fry at one time. They're appetites are growing - they are starting to go into a frenzy when I put powdered fish food in.

Thanks!
Thanks, guys. I think I've caught maybe about 15 platy fry. I've counted up to 11 at once, so I know there's a bunch in here.

I have a plan to turn this into a cherry shrimp tank once it gets a little more established. I'm going to go shopping for an anubias or two for this tank and maybe my other. The LED light doesn't seem to be strong enough to even keep anacharis alive, but I hope anubias will do better.
