New kid on the block
My baby fish is two months old now, so I decided to release him into the general aquarium population. He's big enough and fast enough to avoid being eaten, I think. Imagine my surprise to find a new fry in the tank! I quickly turfed out the big un and tried to snag the newborn, but that little sucker is fast. I did manage to scoop mama fish up in a net and pop her into the fry tank, hoping to see the miracle of birth. So far, all I've seen is the miracle of poopin'. Meanwhile, the fry is managing to avoid becoming dinner by snugging himself down between bits of aquarium gravel.
