Wow, that's very cool! Is it from wild caught fish or F1 etc generations?

Incredibly interesting indeed -- this is an unusual case where attempting line breeding may work, so hope you try!

Do you have still photos to show?

Hi
I use this service
http://www.fotos-hochladen.net/
I'm shure that this exist in English too.
I fyou want to try: Durchsuchen=select a pic, open it; Foto nicht skalieren=original size, better is 800x600; Bild hochladen= upload pic. A new screen opens with all possible links to copy. In this case "Foto für Foren". If you get stuck take the faint "Foto hochladen" in the first screen and you restart again.
Cheers Charles

Also found another 20-30 youngsters inside of the cannister filter.

Hi Charles.
Does Imgur block non members from viewing the images in this way?
If so i will switch to a service that does provide this.

Hi Mike if it grows to maturity i will defenitely attempt to breed it and se eif the gene is dominant.
Have to introduce some fresh genes aswell seeing as this is either F1 or halfway between F1 and F2 (Could this have caused the mutation?)

Thanks for more pics. But I have to say, while I'm sure there are some tiny fry, your filter babies just look like detritus to me, lol. Maybe if they were moving...Congrats again!

Any other "more lively" forums out there where people still discuss their hillstream loaches?
