Sparky's Fry

Here is another batch of fry.It is impressive for a small fish.The swarm is the biggest I have ever seen.I'm guessing around 300.

Since I have been feeding her the veggie and liver diet, she has grown,her colors are brighter and it seems as though it helps in eggs production.






Before anybody kicks my butt about the algea on the glass---I have no pleco in this tank,it is very slow growing,and I keep the entire tank wiped clean at water changes.except for an area on the back glass for the snails as you can see the marks were they eat.

No!! she is a great mom.

Willow--Her face looks like that because she is flaring out her gills to look fiercer.They all do that when defending,fighting,sizing up.
