Ngara Flametail fry&parents

Last weekend my daughter stripped one of our holding female Ngara flametails (she is getting really good at that!) and it turns out she was holding almost 30 fry. It is difficult to get a picture of such tiny little fry, but here is one I got shortly after feeding them, that is why there are flakes on the bottom of their tank. I do light daily cleanings to avoid that. Tracy

Stripping is where you get the female to spit her babies out, so she doesn't do it in the main tank. You take the female, hold her gently, and rock her back and forth in the water. Eventually she will spit the babies out, that way you can save them. A friend of mine fell in love with the dad, so I promised to save him some fry. I will post pictures of both of the parents in a minute. Tracy

Ngara flametail parents

Here are pictures of the parents of the fry I posted earlier.
Here is mom with her mouth still full of babies.

And here is a picture of dad. I did cut off his nose and tail in the picture, but you can still get a good idea of what he looks like. If I find another better picture of him I can post it.
