2 weeks old fry

At 2 weeks they're growing well, weighting in at around 5mm long, 1.5mm in height and 1.5 mm in width. Their belly is pale white, most properly being bloated with microworms. When I look really closely, and I mean really really closely, I can see their caudal fin aka tail fin.

Once I cleared the water up, they spent most of their time at the bottom, searching for food. I realized that if your fry spend most of their time at the surface, this means the water is foul and doesn't have enough oxygen in it. So take that as a sign and do a water change asap.

Now all I can do is to wait for them to grow even bigger.





Some shots of the 2 weeks old fry. Sorry for the blur photos, I'm not much of a photographer.
