Talking I have fry!!!

I was away over the weekend, and I came back and have a bunch of fry!!! They're Endlers livebearers (the only fish in the tank), and the fry look to big now to fit in their parents' mouths. I imagine there were more but some got eaten early on.

I'm SOOOO excited! I never got why breeding was such a thrill before this, but now I totally get it! And this wasn't planned!

I think I am going to separate the fry if I can catch them to make sure they don't get gobbled up.

No worries, endler's don't eat their own fry. I sometimes wish they did, would save me the trouble of thinning them out and feeding them to my catfish. Live floating plants like Najas are great for the breeding tank too.

It is cool, isn't it? My Moors laid eggs 3 weeks ago and I've got 20 or so growing in a nursery tank. Eye balls last week, bellies and tail fins this week.

Have fun .
