They're so cute already! I wish I could see how many wigglers we have in there, but the silly fish has moved them all to the very back of the tank and kind of behind the leaf of one of the live plants. I will still try to take pictures of them later this evening once the battery for the camera has charged(apparently I took too many spawning pictures lol).

A lot of the babies are trying to test their free-swimming abilities today...not to mention their father's patience. He keeps herding them back into the nest.

Talking Swim Swim Swim!

All our little babies are free swimming now. We finally got our BBS hatching so all the fry have cute tiny round bellies full of shrimp.
So far their father is still in with them. We have been watching him carefully and he hasn't tried to eat any of them yet. *knocks on desk* This could be because they have a ton of hornwort and other plants to hide in. He seems interesting in "herding" them back towards the nest at times, but doesn't seem too concerned when they swim away from him either.
I'm not sure how many we have -the hornwort keeps them well hidden from us too, but I've counted more than two dozen swimming around the top at times.

They're very voracious eaters.

They much non-stop. You can see their bellies and their eyes without looking for them now. You can even see their mouths open as they sneak up on hapless brine shrimp...

Oberon has now killed two of the three Nerite snails we had in there. He seems to think they are the origin of all things evil and wrong.

We can now see the fry swimming about without looking to hard for them, yet they're only a week old.
