Okay so I am literally running around the house squealing because I am SO EXCITED right now. It's like I'm being rewarded for all that crap I had to go through a few days back, I am seriously just jumping up and down right now.
Why? Why oh why?
BECAUSE I HAVE FOUR (YES, FOUR, COUNT 'EM) RASBORA BABIES. FOUR. I AM JUST BLOWN AWAY.
I knew one of my shrimp had let loose some babies awhile ago and I was looking for them (didn't find em), but lo and behold, BABY RASBORAS. I originally only saw three but a fourth one made itself present pretty soon after. I am still just so excited right now. My Rasboras have spawned pretty regularly but I just assumed that the Kuhlis would eat all the eggs/fry, and the Rasboras would probably have their fair share of nomming.
I actually got a video, you can see three of them. I'm HOPING they can hide well enough from the Rasboras, I have my fingers crossed so tight. They're hiding behind the aponogeton leaf, they're those three little specks in the video.
It's pretty funny because literally a minute before I spotted them I was thinking "I should get a few more Rasboras, maybe 3 or 4..."
I don't think I'm going to target feed them or anything, and I've seen them darting around a few times, hopefully getting bites to eat. I think my tank is established enough to have plenty of food for them, plus I think putting food near them might just invite the adults to dinner....0.0
So, I HOPE I can find them regularly after this, but even if they don't survive I am just through the roof excited. Harlequin Rasbora BABIES - YouTube
