Default F1 Nkonde fry



I'm really impressed with the quality of fry my wc nkonde colony has been producing. Above is a short video of the last batch of fry i shipped out mixed with a new batch that i just added in the growout tank. You can notice a substantial size and coloration difference between the two. The new fry are .5-.75" and the fry that have colored up are 1.25- 1.5". Ive noticed them starting to gain nice color around the 1" range. The video was shot a night before shipping, so that would make two days after a water change and day 2.5 of fasting. Please watch it at 720p or higher if possible.

They still have their stripes, they are just really light. Im sure dependingbon mood they darken up and the stropes are more evident.
