Pics of pregnant Swordtail and fry

Some pics of a pregnant pineapple swordtail and her fry in a nursery tank. She gave birth to 6 surviving fry.

Welcome to Aquarium Advice! Those are great pictures. The fish are very pretty. I really like the pose in the first picture. That's a very nice snail too!

Great pics! And Welcome to AA!

Those Pineapple Swords are gorgeous! I might need to look for some of those for one of my tanks. The fry are so cute as well.

What an awesome first post. You're obviously a very talented photographer. Hopefully you can share more in the future.

The pictures are only a few days apart, so you can see the mother about 18 hours before giving birth.

I'm using a Canon EOS 10D with a variety of prime lenses, mostly a Canon 50mm f/1.8.
