    Its the stress bars,dark fins and most of all washed out color. Usually the color pops in fish that are paired.. just gave me the impression it was not feeling well. Older fish can get that look too.

    But from Toms sept pic it doesnt look to have changed much. ..which is a good sign.

    Yes it’s a strange fish. Batik eruption. Here’s the day I got it0E3D07B1-E4CD-4930-9662-7FCF8853D3D7.jpg he’s up front. This pic is 10 days laterDA4D998A-167F-4574-9EBA-C762B338CDE6.jpg far left. The other 2 are females and have both been laying eggs together on a regular basis. Neither wanted the male in the tank. So I removed a female and he looked like thisD7D43236-2098-43A8-B244-C90D4FD6F285.jpg. Guess fry don’t agree with him. They only raised fry once. Been eating them regularly since. Now debating adding them to main tank.

    Well the parents are inthe main tank. Been a few weeks now. Hard to say how they’re doing. Female already laid eggs with a different male (no loyalty ). The babies are growing. Showing pattern’s and some color. 842E2FA7-0A92-4B7D-9FF6-CFAD230E02B6.jpgC87B6ED2-AB1C-472C-8407-090FE0583DA2.jpg11BFB88B-2488-49B9-A81E-CE9384333E73.jpg. Lots of food and water changes!!

    I think I started going gray while acting fine and eating (too much) when I first had kids too. Also still doing that now.

    All has been going well here. All 7 still living6C243A5A-812B-49AB-9999-CCF454451F58.jpg C2D9D434-127E-4A70-9FBD-EB9B2AA09389.jpg. The 2 biggest I moved into the 180 first week of March 2 weeks later I added 2 more and a few days later added the last 3 to the 125. All are doing well.A40E6929-6DA0-4E38-8126-BEA43F57EF26.jpg 125 the 3 on the left. And in the 180 they are the smallest of the group.4ED1BE75-29AB-4F7D-AC2A-68F4F11788DE.jpg

    Thanks!! I’m happy with the way they turned out and now just hoping they grow more in the bigger tanks. The female parent has been laying eggs with a pigeon blood since I moved her into the 180. So I’m going to put them into the 50 and see how it goes.36968CA3-ECA9-4D04-936E-B7C8A73E80F6.jpgB5B416E7-1F28-4B6C-B1E9-F909DF5A7AA4.jpg
