ohh, did u have to kill them? couldnt u just keep them but not breed them???
i wonder which is better.. i guess if u had room u'd keep them, but if not, better to kill them, just as painlessly as possible

Ahhhh I just saw my fry I talked about in the last thread I thought for sure she was a goner since I had not seen her since the 8th, shes got full coloration now and getting brave enough to emerge from her hiding spot, well that was until her mother started chasing her trying to eat her. Got away this time hopefully she can get big enough soon she wont be considered food... I don't know why but I'm really excited.....

At least yours have a protected environment, I guess I will just have to hope for the best... and darn I have plants coming this week and was going to do a complete over haul with the deco.... I don't want to put her at a disadvantage by taking away her hiding places.... oh the agony of parenthood (sorta)
