Cherry Barb Fry and Several Platy Fry

I didnt know i had a male and female and since the barbs are the smallest fish in my tank, i was sure that any fry that hatched (or birthed from some of my live bearers) would have a chance to survive.

Boy was i wrong. My tank is densely planted giving shelter to them. When doing a water change i saw several Platys fry (no suprise there, i have a tank of young Platys as my female gives birth about every 4 weeks consistently) and 1 cherry barb fry. It was kinda cool since this is my first fry from a non-live bearer. Also i have such a crew of omnivorous "algae" eaters, i wouldnt think eggs would stand a chance, esp since my snail clutches never last more than 2-3 hrs.

Ill see if I can snap a picture or two next water change.

I got some pics, ill post tonite. It was hard to get a clear picture of the little guy. I hope he hides well enough to survive. I assume all his brothers and sisters didnt make it.

Congratulations. I hope they have survived!

I started with 7 Cherry Barbs (4F/3M) last year, and every 4-5 months 2 or 3 juveniles (about 1/2 inch long) show up. By the time I see them, they have gotten big enough to survive to adulthood. Never really thought that the cherry barbs would be the breeders in my tank. Quite a nice surprise when it happens.
