    Default Withdrawn: Pat's Contest Fish Wild Tefe F1 "Batch B"

    This thread will be a temporary home for me to document the fish I will be using in the Hobbyist Challenge which are the second successful spawn (Batch B) from my wild Tefe's. The female is the same female for Batch A but the male is different and prettier then the Batch A male.

    Here are the parents.


    Mom


    Dad


    The brooding tank is my 230 bio-tope tank with a foam divider between the parents and the rest of the Tefe group. The ph is 7.2, TDS is ~40 and temp is still 78F.

    Today's video of the wigglers at nine day free swimming. The wigglers are looking more like fish and less like mosquito larvae.

    Started introducing BBS yesterday (yea, I know a couple of days late). No takers but the wigglers are starting to show a little independent from the parents. There is one little guy who keeps wondering from the pack and mom always has to come fetch him. Bet one day he will be the alpha male if he survives the forays away from the parents.

    This video is a bit dark and day 12 for the Batch B Tefe fry. Today if you look below mom you can see of the wigglers hanging a little away from Mom. They are getting a little independent.

    Thanks Keith, they are getting quite dependent of the parents. I am trying to decide if I should pull them before going to the show.
