So today was my birthday. While the kids had Wii sports tournaments and Mr. Snapper cleaned the house I tended to fishy things. Changed water (always! ), including giving the goldie fry their first water change. Tried vacuuming a little too but I was so nervous I'd suck up some fry I stopped. I'll do more another time. I tended to the plants in the tropical tank. I got some pics of my cichlid fry. They're about the size of a neon tetra now.
Sat and watched the goldie fry for a good long time. They had pink bellies from eating brine shrimp and I saw a couple pooping. YAY POOP! I even spied little pectoral fins on one of them. It might be my eyes playing tricks on me, but I can kind of see the double tails developing too.
And then I took a nap. So it was a good day.
