We've got fry!

Peaking at the nest I can't see an unhatched egg. Every time a bubble pops there's a flurry of tiny tails curling and uncurling from the disturbance. I wish my camera would focus on objects that small!

As soon as I can get decent pics I will. The babies are spinning around the top, bare minimum bubbles with Dag lurking underneath to make sure they stay there. He's gotten some energy back and he's eaten a lot of the eggs that were on the bottom so I think he's doing good food wise.

You can see some of the fry at the edges. There's more in the middle.

'lil baby fry heads! And there are so many! Daddy looks like he's being pretty good, minus the bubble nest or lack thereof. That's such a cute picture though.

The nest is in an area that's 'walled' off by floating objects and some of the fry are taking the opportunity to learn to skate on surface tension. They leave the bubble nest, go spinning across, stop, and then dart back to the bubbles.



I could watch them all day.

I think they are at the stage of beginning free swimming. Dag is running around the tank after them and every time he goes in one direction a couple more escape from the nest area in the other.

Man....I feel his pain. Kids!

I woke up this morning to an aquarium full of fry all over the place, lol. So dad has been taken out and is acclimating to his new digs (he's pissed) and a sponge filter (old media) has been put in to start cycling some of the gross.
