Thanks...as soon as I've got some good pics I'll post them. Right now the fry are in unlit to low lit tanks (we're running out of lights LOL) so photographing them isn't easy.

If you lived nearby I'd pay you to mow our lawn in order to "feed" your aquarium appetite LOL.

Your folks probably won't let you put the java moss in because it grows unbelievably crazy. It sits on the bottom without weight, has no roots and can overtake a tank very quickly with the right lighting and without pulling some out from time to time.

LOL thx aquariangel yea my parents dont care about the fish as much as i do. they say im obsessed with them but its just a hobby im just starting to like and its interesting. java moss sounds like a good idea cause i can trim them monthly or weekly whatever it takes to make my fry survive. i have this little journal thing i can use to record the growth and stuff. i may sound like a freak but i want to become a zoologist or something involving animals when i grow up to study their life and redproduction.for some reason my parents dont respect that. im not aloud to feed the fish and my stepdad didnt even feed them twice today and its 7:30pm and he fed them at around 9:00am

LOL, no, you don't sound like a freak , we have post-its hanging on the tanks with all the parameters every time he tests, at least once a month. That way he can tell if there's been any major changes. It's a good idea and makes a better keeper.

It's really a shame that your parents don't support your interest considering it's a very respectable field to get into.If you get the chance go to the Galápagos Islands. A lot of schools do trips there, but you have to earn/work your way into the program. If your parents don't let you feed the fish suggest an auto feeder that way they don't always have to remember and you know the fish are getting fed on a regular schedule. IDK, might be a comprimise they'd consider.
