Im really excited about this spawn :D

Male is a melano by Adithira and is my first ever aquabid fish

My goal is for melano to come back, I expect non metallic steel and royal based melanos, solids and marbles (mums line had heaps of marble)

Babies are about 10 days old and eating bbs and having 80-90% daily water changes, so far so good

I scooped up some tub water and ended up with all these in my cup so decided to take some photos of them while I could see them, looks like theres quite a few blacks :D hopefully they stay that way

They are about 39 days, I feed them bbs and aquapearls, but these guysdont seem to have really aged much in comparison to my other spawns who are the same age

One of my spawns is a day ahead of yours & look the same as yours. I've just started them on grated frozen bloodworms.

Glad mine arent too far behind then. What do you reckon my chances of having frozen bloodworms shipped to me and arrive still solid are? Theres no petstores here and usually mine would be eating frozen at this age too but Im paranoid about it thawing out before it gets here

Aquapearls are just little orange pellets, these ones took to them really quickly and love them

Thanks :)  hes a bit of a weirdo and has decided that he will only flare at a black stick, no reflections or other fish....if its not a black stick hes not having it.

The other fish are starting to catch up in growth now that hes safely jarred, another literally identical one to him is the biggest now
