Thanks,

Ha, I don't know. The parents seem to spawn about once a month. I could always keep another batch.

Almost 7 months old now

Here's a few pics of our firemouth fry at almost 7 months old. As you can tell, they are piglets.

Thanks.

To be honest, these were the easiest fry I've ever raised.
