A bucketful of burdigala!
A bucketful of burdigala! About 40 young ones in the 20 gallon grow-out now. I combined about 30 that were artificially hatched with another dozen that were raised by the parents. Interestingly, the artificially hatched burdigala are VERY friendly - they come right up to the front and beg for food. The ones that were raised by the parents are shy, although not as shy as the parents. Luckily I caught them with a bunch of eggs in the film canister, so hopefully I have another big batch of artificially hatched ones on the way. These guys range from about a cm to 3-4 cm - not ready for new homes just yet! Although they are already fighting! Little stinks.
