I am still waiting for my momma platy (tropical fish) to pop. She had babies about a month ago (or somebody did anyway…) but none survived. She’s big as fish houses now and you can see through her enough to make out the eyes of all the little baby fishies, which is a bit gross if I think about it — so I don’t. There has been crazy plant growth since the last batch of fry (baby fishes) and I’m hoping that the little ones will have more cover this go-round.
I bought a fish breeder box but the directions say not to leave her in the box for more than a couple days, and there seems to be no way to tell when she’s going to have the kids until she’s having them. 🙁 In any case, I’ll try to get some pix of the fry if I can before they all get eaten. (Isn’t it kinda ironic that all fry are eaten raw? Stupid fish don’t even know how good they taste fried…)
