thanks ....when there bigger il get pics :).....i have a plan it mite just work.......thing is 1 male i have has been breed to be small and is very colourful and has a fancy tail, what im going to do is when these fry are older/bigger im gona move the male into the breeder net with the growing fry and hopefully he will breed with the females that are getting bigger, then after a week of 2 i will let them all out into my main tank then when fry come along i will know who the father in and the fry should look reallly fancy :):):)
