New fry!

So this week I had my kribs give fry and last night my ruby greens spit their fry. I had to help them a little it was their first time and they are only about 1.25" !! This is only the second batch of fry I have ever got. Once was an accidental breeding between bumblebee and ice blue Cichlid. The big blue one below is the only remaining survivor. I have my krib fry in a plastic breeder box and the ruby green fry in the mesh box. I had to put sand on the bottom due to some Cichlid picking at them

Gorgeous fish! Lucky guy, I was thinking of breeding fish some time soon too. I think they will be magnificent fish!
What are you going to do with them? Sell them or keep them?

I'm gonna raise them to about an inch or so then sell some and keep a couple. I got about 15 from 2 females.

That's great stuff. How much money were you expecting to sell them for? 1$ each?

Good luck. I know pet shops are good at negotiations.
Anyways, I would love to see these fish when they grow bigger!:L
