Update: my F1 Enantiopus kilesa fry groups are doing well :)

I took a few more pics of Group A. They were newly stripped fry (at Day 1 of life outside of mom's mouth on 6/22/11). These next few pics are of the same fish, nearly five months later, on 11/29/11. They are all approaching 2-inches in length and I am making plans to move them, from the 10-gallon tank, into a 30 gallon long tank and combining them with Group B.

Thanks for coming along on the journey. Here is Group A on 11/29/11

Here is a shot of Group B (also in a 10-gallon tank)

Thanks,

I have not taken photos of the kilesa fry lately (I probably should call them juvies by now). The largest group are approximately 2" and the rest of them probably 1.5". I shipped a group of them to their new home this week so I thought I would get some pics before the shipment. Kilesa fry are always so eager to meet you at the tank - I had second thoughts on selling some of them while photographing them. Those kinds of thoughts lead you to dozens of tanks which I can't handle :)

This series of photos was of them when I first turned the tank lights on. They were all resting still on the bottom and they had their camouflage coloring on. Here is a few photos :)

Now that would be totally cool! Could I catch a couple and put them in my pocket and bring them home :wink:
I need to put this trip on my bucket list. My bucket list has me putting a couple kids through college at present.

Thanks for the kind words everyone :D

CYL,
Russ
