Sorry for starting another thread,

Just wanted to make maximise the chance that someone who may have my answer may not reread an old thread.

I had a look this morning an although I did not count the fry in my lf tank It would be safe to say there is over a hundred.

Because the parents are relatively young and smallish... I am assuming that the male must have serviced both females in that batch. Hence the alb, calico and commons in one batch of fry.

However, upon closer inspection I cannot see any evidence of longfins, Is it possible with two lf parents not to get any lf fry ?

Do the fins grow long later ???

longfins seem to be obvious at about 2-3 weeks after leaving the cave. but yes it is possible, though it would be very odd, just from a chance point of view

Thanks for responding D,

OK so hopefully early days still

I have noticed some have short wide tails, others have longer thinner tails, there is real variety of shapes and sizes.
