Hopefully they wont go after them, cause they look and act likt the big ones...grow fast little babies!!
Been doing well..fish counts. So far all four babies are still there. They enjoy schooling with the big ones and thankfully tend to keep to the left side of the tank (they favor the beige log).
Senegals don't even bother looking at them and Queen has definitely taken to the Silversides which should keep her sated enough to give the little ones a chance to grow.

With the addition of the new loachlings, and those gorgeous gourami - that tank has really come alive! You would think that a tank twice the size of the other would *seem* LESS active with all the extra space. Looking GREAT, Fox! I've got my fingers crossed that Queen leaves those little babies alone! Grow, babies, GROW!!!
The bigger ones are definitely showing an improvement in behavior. They are out even more often, and love to wrestle with the smaller ones (guess they have to establish who is in charge).
The Gourami love the additional plants. They seem to like darting in an out of the vegetation. They still eat like pigs.
Also speaking of Queen...I saw something that really makes me happy. She's coming out a bit more and sometimes when she does she goes towards the front right side of the tank. When the senegals are out there at the same time she's actually putting up with them. She's nowhere near as aggressive now towards the senegals...even tolerating them intruding on the big pipe every once in a while. He colors also seemed brighter today...that may be the fact she's now eating something much more substantial and meaty.
