My first fry!

So I'm feeding everybody in my 72G community today and noticed some itty bitty black babies! SO CUTE! I'm assuming they are one of my dalmation molly fry. I've only seen two- I'm sure the rest got eaten- which I knew would happen. But still seeing the two swimming around today was fun! I made a little cove in the corner of my tank and put some thick plants for them to hide in. We'll see what happens! Picture of the cove, I'm calling it "Fry Town". Couldnt get a pic of the little guys....

Now that I look closer it does look like the fry are in the pic... Can't tell if that's them or just spots on the sand- they are so dang tiny!

Snapped a pic of one of the little frys hanging out by fry town this morning! I think I have seen 2 others- for a grand total of 3! Let's see if they make it..

Snapped of pic of one of the little squirts this morning. I have 3 in total! They are all about this size and so stinkin cute. I can't wait to see what their color looks like when they grow up- they are dalmation mollies! I have several females and they are all a little different colored! I have 1 that is mostly white, one that is mostly black and one that's in between. My male is almost all black. We'll see!

I don't feed them any special food, they must be good little scavengers! I guess that means I'm raising them to be tough.
The tetras do a good job at population control so I'd be surprised if I see very many make it to adulthood. BUT I have so enjoyed watching these little squirts!

Nice, recently I had only 1 platy fry make it. A girl white with orange stripes, it's really fun to see little "kids" grow up and survive especially when its very small numbers and natural.
