Baby goldfields post first shed

Postby acanthurus » Wed Apr 30, 2014 6:16 am

A few pics of the first 9 babies from this year to shed (still have the last 2 yet to shed). Colours are coming along nicely, but will be a few more sheds before they reach their full potential.

Sorry about the poor quality and my toes being in some pics (taken on iPhone)

First four

Next 5
Image

Image

Also a couple of pics of some yearlings and 2 year olds to show development in growth and colour.

Yearling male - the males usually grow a bit quicker than the girls over the first year.

Image

Yearling females - usually quite lanky at this age.

Image

Image

2 year old female - they don't tend to grow much in length, but put on a lot in weight in their second year.

Image

2 year old male - note the head becoming boofy and body a bit more chunky. He's a bit on the small side length wise, but should still make a good breeder.

All gorgeous and that two year old male is incredible. What a lovely hunk of a shingle! He's going to make some more beautiful babies for you soon enough.
