Meet Lucky

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it! I cleaned out the filter in the 55 gallon tank this morning, its an older biowheel 330 with the extra media baskets....guess what I found!

I found a fry thats been living in the filter, in one of those extra media baskets since Christmas time :o Hes just as big as my other fry that are in their own tank, I'm still in shock that hes alive and healthy, I mean, how is that even possible :blink: . I guess I should clean out the filter more often :lol:

Needless to say I've named him Lucky. His mouth is deformed, it looks more like a bird beak than a fish mouth, but he eats just fine, hes about an inch long. I'll get a picture of him sometime soon but I just had to pop in and tell you guys about this little guy. I just can't believe it :krazy:

Okay, heres some pics of the little guy. Don't worry, I'm not keeping him in that tiny little cup. I only put him in there so I could get some decent pics ;)

I'm not sure who his parents are. I suspect his mother is my calico girl but it could be my red and white and his father....well theres three choices there so I can't be sure ;)

I'm not sure how many fry I have now, it would seem like I'd have a head count by now but they're so fast and theres so many. I would guess around 30 :blink: Thank goodness I'm getting a bigger pond this summer :D

I'm just amazed that this little guy survived and got as big as he did. Hes larger than most of my other fry that have had the best care I've been able to give them. It baffles me :krazy:
