Smile 2 Weeks

So we've hit the two week mark. The babies all seem healthy and happy. They have begun to develop their caudals and pectorals. It is just adorable. Some of them are still very tiny and others are just huge. They all seem well though.

Papa Oberon, who is still in the tank with them, is also doing well and has yet to be seen munching a single baby. *knocks on desk* He mostly contents himself with patroling the tank and threatening the one remaining snail he hasn't yet managed to kill.

I'm hoping the larger fry are big enough for the camera to focus on. So later I may come back and post the however fuzzy results.

Talking Fuzzy Fry Pictures!

The babies are three weeks old now and doing very well. They are eating like little tiny vaccuumcleaners. It's adorable. I though I'd post some pics. They're a little fuzzy because our camera hates focusing on tiny moving things. lol

Bittersweet Babies

The fry are continuing to grow at an amazing rate.

Sadly, their father, Oberon passed away last night.
