Baby Reticulated Hillstream Loach
I just had to share this with someone who might be interested.
I have seen a tiny fish darting around once or twice over the last couple of weeks but it was there one minute and gone the next so I didn't have a chance to identify it. This morning it is flitting around on a piece of drift wood and it is clearly a Reticulated Hillstream Loach. It is about 15mm long so I have every hope it will survive. I am ridiculously excited about it
I knew they had been mating, but also knew the eggs were falling into the substrate and guessed they were probably being either eaten by my 7 corydoras or were being siphoned up during gravel cleans. I suppose there might be more but I definitely have one. I feel like a proud mum!
