My 6 day old Mbuna Fry

Just a few pictures of the first Fry we've ever had in 7 years of fish keeping.
There are about 20 or so, but they are to hard to count. They won't hold still long enough and they all look the same so you can't tell which ones you counted and which ones you didn't.

Thank you, I feel like I'm the new Mommy.
I'm just learning how to take Photos, so out of 200 pictures I got 14 that were usable. It's really hard to take a pics. of these little guys. They don't want to cooperate with the camera.

For size comparison, that black thing is an air stone. That how much smaller than just an air stone they are.

Thank you, we think so too. I am in complete awe of these little guys. On day one they couldn't swim they had to hop from place to place or Mama scooped em up and now they swim like pros darting around the tank at feeding time to catch every speck as it floats down.
And their eyes are moving all the time so they don't miss a thing. I know that a fishes brain isn't much bigger than the pellets we feed them, but I swear these fry look like they are thinking all the time.
Oh, and they have really little fish lips just like the adult Mbunas do, its soooo cute.

Congrats!

But they're kenyi X red-top zebra hybrids, right? What is your plan for them?

That's what we think, I didn't see them mate. But afterwards Charlie our RTZ was chasing all the other fish away from Rainbow and being insanely protective. Which he's never done before, so we are guessing by their behavior that Charlie is the Father. Plus our male Kenyi isn't mature enough to be the father. He's only half way changed from being blue.
As far as the fry, I'm going to sell them for a couple of buck on craigslist, along with all the info about hybrids and not mating them.
I suppose if they mated with just Kenyi that eventually it wouldn't matter that they were hybrids, but it's safer if they don't mate at all.
If I had the room I would keep them. But I don't and I won't euthanize them because they are hybrids.
So craigslist and information is my only option.
