just to give you guys an idea how fast these are growing,... hopefully all keeps going on nicely with the plings,... can't wait for a second generation :D

(sorry for the messy pictures, but these only stay paralysed for a few seconds,...)

august 4cm BL


september 6cm BL

not the same individual i guess, but surely from the same clutch, i have 2 groups of 10 pedelings that i keep records on, and shifting colors is common with pedelings so it "could" be the same individual, next time i'll be sure to take the same individual.

That's some crazy good growth!
These guys don't get very big as adults though do they?

My adult female is at least 7" in bodylength, and Steven once posted a photo of a 21cm bodylength specimen, so no, they do get quite large ;)

For some reason I had the impression they only got to about 6 inches.:eek:
Even more appeal to me now.{D

A huge difference!, would be hard to see without the ruler and I can tell it's even less appreciated than if we could see with our own eyes. thanks for the pics.

i would kill for one of those. that is one of the best looking s. hardwicki i've ever seen. almost looks like a toy since the colors are so vivid and solid.

Lookin good, Steven. Thanks for the updates :)
I don't think anyone will be getting bored with these!

Edit: Can I ask how exactly you're able to flip them over like that? Are you using a mild anesthetic?

Still going strong I see!
No losses I'm guessing?
Mine are growing really fast as well.

I'm thinking that he probably put it in the fridge for a short period.
