ok so today i found the wierdest thing today.one of my older fry is 2 times bigger than all the other fry and it has its tail fully colored in and looks exactly like the mom!! its gravid spot is bigger than all the other fry and it has a black spot in it. im hoping its not pregnant cause it can die.its almost 2 months old tho.
i found this fry before but it hides so good so i only see it once in a while.last time i saw it was a week ago and i guess it got all its color in that time.( why arnt my males getting color at all?

i know females develop faster than males but when the males develop they grow and change very fast......do you remember the fry i had born last november....well one of them has only just developed its gonapodia...:):):)....tso some are just quicker than others and i remember when my last 2 drops were together i HAD to resease a big fry because i was scared it was almost bigg enough to eat its brothers and sisters :)
