good news well my 3 spawnings or rosy red eggs have completed. i suspect
that a few of the eggs did hatch friday. there had been a lot of fungus on
the eggs but i think some made it.

bad news. i can NOT find any fry in the 125 gallon tank. but the tank is
so big that it might be hard to find anyway.

good news. there is a small colony of live daphnia living in the tank.

good news. i got a new set of eggs on thursday. but these eggs i am
leaving with the male. does anyone know how to tell when the eggs might be
ready to hatch so i can remove them. last time i removed then immediately
and the eggs got lots of fungus. so i am hoping it will help to leave the
eggs with the male for some time. how long i have no idea.
