That bent dorsal on the male isn't genetic either. They get like that when fry are raised in a short tank. Really, If you raise the fry in a 55 when they get big enough, they will have straight dorsals.

Nice pic. They look good clear like that. Bad ones will go opaque

yay! I can confirm I have wigglers!! but Stumpy just gave me a heart attack. I'm watching a clump of them, and I can clearly see the movement, she came by and ate them!! but then I watched her spit them out on the rock, there's like a small ledge that has a bunch of them there, and some are still stuck to the rock wiggling. i guess the ones that are falling off the rock are being "put back"

this is very exciting!!

yes, I havent messed with lighting, it has the moonlighting but I have just kept on the regular light. they are definitely moving, parents are working on keeping them in the same area, a pretty good number of them are still surviving! I managed to get a few video clips lastnite, will get some more tonite

now i'm starting to get a little nervous. I still have plenty of them left, they will be free swimming soon, I need a crash course in baby brine shrimp, hatching or whatever, they are so cute!

here's a clump of them I can easily see, dont know if this is all of them or not, but this is enough to start with

get a few 2 liter soda bottles......a 5 gallon bag of marine salt mix...an air pump , airline , a gang valve and some airstones... and brine shrimp eggs of course....
the bottles need to be warm...78-82.....mix enough salt to make 1 gal. fill the bottles about 3/4 full... drill a hole in the caps big enough to put the airline through..
with a small funnel put about 1 teaspoon of eggs in 1 bottle.....leave the other bottle for the next batch...put the cap on and push the airstone all the way to the bottom and run it almost full blast...at 80 degrees they should hatch in about 24 hours...after 1 day of feeding put eggs in the other bottle to hatch out so they are ready when you are done with bottle 1...

or.....................................you could just buy nonhatching decapped brine eggs and feed them to the fry...

well poo. a couple of them looked like they were ready to free swim tonite, so I was busy with other things around the house, sat down with the camera to get some video, and they are gone. I guess the parents thought they were food?

guess I'll do a water change, get things cleaned up and wait for next time. Man i'm devastated
