And in the Second Honeymoon Suite...

Meanwhile, in the second Honeymoon Suite, the two koi angelfish, Robert Redfish and Susan Saranfish have been getting used to their new digs.

They have a bright red amazon plant on which to lay their eggs. There are two snails in the tank at the moment but when this pair begin to lay eggs, I will scoop the snails out so there are no potential predators.

The male has more black on his fins than the female in the picture at right.

I am hoping they will want to breed soon. I have folks waiting to purchase some bright orange koi angels, as they are quite rare.

Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment, Misaki! I'm beginning to wonder if they are so rare because they rarely lay eggs! They are taking their time and not yet showing any inclination that they want to start a family. But with warmer weather coming, I am hoping they get in the mood!
