Angelfish Squirmers

Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick have been at it again. Just two weeks after their last clutch, they have laid one of the largest clutches ever. There must have been more than 300 eggs!

They hatched yesterday and the parents dutifully carried each one (yes, each one individually!) to a new amazon leaf they cleaned just for their new babies. They will hang from that leaf by their little heads until they are strong enough to swim.

Here's the video. You can see them squirming by their little heads while they grow!
