    So, dunno who does stickies but I think this one definitely needs to be up there. If I say sticky enough times, will that work?

    By the way Mike, the ex-breeder I got is much bigger than that large one in the pic, I believe. It would be awesome if you can post a pic of that too with the rest of the other pics. You're the man!

    Thank you for the great photos!

    I am hoping you'll elaborate more on this quote:

    Is it possible to manipulate the sex ratio through diet? And since you're the ASF guru, what IS the "ideal" ASF diet, in your opinion?

    The ideal ASF diet in my opinion is Lab block. I have always used Mazuri 6F. There are lots of different lab blocks out there, and honestly I don't know much about the others. This is where connie (littleindiangirl) is the expert.

    And yes, connie once sent me a study that showed the effects of different protein levels in the feed. According to that study, protein did have an effect on the sex % of the babies. You will have to ask her for more info on that one....

    Re: ASF Size Chart

    IMO -- I think your sizes are off.

    Pinks should be pinks -- those that are only a day or three old pinkies without hair - and you skipped hoppers altogether.

    There must be something wrong with your ASF's. The day my asf's are born they have some hair. The Pink in the pic is prob 2 - 3 days old.

    As stated in the origional post, these are the sizes I use when I sell frozen ASF's. I at no time said that the pictures represented every stage of development.... Sorry I did not consult you first before making my pricesheet!

    Yeah, you may want to look into what you are doing wrong if your adult ASF's are only getting to around 80 grams. My exbreeders easily get to 120 +

    Re: ASF Size Chart

    Nevermind I thought you were trying to give accurate information not your pricing list -- didn't say that my ASFs only got up to 80 grams -- I said 80 easy meaning bottom weight for an adult.

    Again sorry I misunderstood that you were promoting your product instead of providing information. Perhaps the thread should be moved to the classifieds.
