New Babies!

I seem to have this amazing luck with babies. My one Buenos Aires Tetra baby that I managed to get out of my 75 gal before he was eaten is now about 1 1/2" long. I'm waiting until he gets closer to 2" to put him back in with the big dogs...so to speak. I want to make sure he doesn't fit in anyone's mouth. o.O

However, I have more new babies! When I was using the gravel vac around the little cave that I foundt he first baby fish in, another one popped out yesterday! So I scooped that one up and put him in my 10 gallon.

So I'm watching this little itty bitty guy eat and swim around with the glowlights (and his brother/half-brother that I mentioned above), and I notice movement around my little caves and rock areas set up for my two cory cats in the 10 gal.

I see a lot more movement there in the shadows than what would respresent just two cory cats, so I lift one of the rocks...lo and behold...three baby cory cats! They look EXACTLY like the parent fish but tiny! OMG! How cute.

So now I wait for all the tiny/baby fish to get big to join the big boy tank. God, this fish thing is so cool. o.O

I passed my year mark of being a fishkeeper this past summer...and I've learned so much. Mostly from reading here and getting advise here. Thank you for all of you, even if I didn't agree with all your suggestions! What an awesome forum and an awesome experience fishkeeping truly is.

Merry Christmas all! I look forward to another year as a successful fishkeeper and aquarium enthusiast!

Definitely cool!

Finding babies (especially unexpected like you did) is so fun!

It shows you came a long way in 18 moths or so, having spontaneous breeding. Breeding fish are happy fish, which shows You did your job very well!
