Abjd Growth Picture

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I will start a li'l pic timeline of my ebjd breeding project. As far as i know these are the first ebjd bred and raised in ab. please correct me if i am wrong. anyways...here is the first pic of the AB blue line. It is from a ebjd father and bgjd daughter. THanks to RD for the research articles on line/inbreeding etc. Currently, I have 11 (used to be 12 but squished it with a net during transfer)ebjd.

2.5 weeks old

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.

Thanks folks. I will update this as much as possible. I am also interested to find out when they start turning blue. If any other blue owners out there want to trade blues...let me know.

Thanks

They are getting bigger. They will be approx 4 weeks this sunday. They are about 1/2 inch long and you can start to see bluish tinge at the gill plates.

Excuse the photos. Here are the abjd at approximately 3/4 of an inch some about 1 inch. It is hard to photograph the blue coming out.

Looking wicked, starting to look like fish, not just fry. If you know what I mean?

i understand what you meant. Finally a breakthrough with feeding. They are taking adult frozen brine shrimp (fortified with vitamins, etc.)I am still pushing NLS just not sure how much they are taking it. this way i can stop my bbs "factory" for now. Now i understand why they are so pricey! Two years to get any blues! anyways, all 11 are going strong. keeping my fingers crossed!

Quick update: 11 is eating well. I am currently feeding a mix of frozen brine shrimp with vits and omega and NLS. They are FAT! Some looks wider as they are long...basically a square...haha.Some are over 1" (eyeball measurement) and the blue are coming out more. They have to "hunt" their food now as the tank is pretty big compared to their old one. Its funny how they school at this size...basically playing follow the leader. No obvious deformities. I will keep them until they hit around 3 inches at least and no deformities.
