    I love these little guys, for fry which are usually pretty bland and borring, i think they are particularly good looking, and it will be interesting to see when they turn blue! I kind of regret not getting some of these guys, they were a huge reason for me getting so into the hobby caught my eye but then i got scared to keep them as a newby lol. awesome thread jonah.and good work.

    good luck! you can use hikari first bites, my fry took it within the first week, ive heard of a lot of ppl starting straight off the bat with this...also another thing i havent tried would be to use your favorite pellet in a pepper grinder. I may try that next time if i ever have fry again. Very interesting that you are seeing the differences in the fry, in the fry that you believe are eb's are you also finding that they are smaller than the carriers? On another note, its been over a year since ive had babies, but im pretty sure bbs lose their nutritional value after 24 or 48 hours ish? might be something worth looking into, and in my opinion these babies should be more than ready to start on flake (powder) foods, just keep it clean as im sure you already know, and feed in tiny amounts with a straw. I understand you wanting to be more careful with these guys though especially the blues as they are known to be more sensitive...cant wait to see pics cheers

  15. My Flowerhorns

    Got these guys in from Thailand. One Fully Faded male with huge head potential,nice short face,strong tale and balanced finnage at 4 inches. Two short body thai silk (only one pictured)they are 1.5 inches--these guys have unbelievable personalities, they are like little puppies waiting at the tank for me, and they are both completely round lol funny to watch, also the one pictured is getting a bump on his head too. And last but not least, one regular bodied Thai silk fry @ 2inches , who has head pontetial as well. Cant wait to get these guys out of de-parasiting and quarantine (a must for fish comming from thailand as they usually all use live foods)...they are all juvies.... but so far so good! enjoy
