Surprise BN fry

I noticied some nesting behavior by my male on Saturday, when I decided that it was time to re-scape. I figured I could wait until Sunday when normal maintenance occurs. As I start to drain the tank, I see the first little BN fry cruising along the front of the glass. Not too long after I see a few more as the adult male's fins continued to wave. There had to be more hatching, so I decided that the rescape can wait. Yesterday (Monday) morning I see a bunch hanging out behind one of my powerheads, and today I got a good shot of a bunch of them all hanging out together.







Tank stats:
75 gal
planted with crypts, anubias, and ferns
2x55/65w CF
regulated CO2

This is the second unexpected BN spawn in my tank, the first occured early April 2007. Maybe it will become a yearly event.

Awesome pics of some cute fish!

I recently got some ~1in LF ABN babies from a friend. They are so cute.

I love that first pic of them all.
