Holy Jelly Beans! FRY!

I LOVE reading about the babies and seeing pics! I can't EVEN imagine what it must be like!!!! Caring for that many little ones. I can barely keep my 2 adults going. Everytime one gets a scale knocked off or doesn't quite look right I go into a panic. I'm hoping they are both ladies and I will never have to worry with this. I will leave it to the rest of you to be the midwives and Grannies/Grandads. I'm better at kitten-rearing!!! :D

:teehee that's very sweet :) the babies are very fun and a learning experience. I'm slightly concerned about their forever homes because I can't keep 40 fish :o

However, I noticed 1 or 2 of the fry are significantly bigger than the rest. Then, right before my eyes, I saw one of them sneak attack a smaller one and try to fit it in it's mouth :yikes the small fish didn't fit :rofl but I suspect that's how these two fish got bigger.

:rofl it's funny you mention that! Initially, they are transparent so you can see the poop before it starts to exit their bodies :o it's fascinating :)
