New Batch of Angel Babies

Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick have a new batch of babies.

The eggs were on another leaf of this amazon plant. When they began to hatch, the parents moved them to another leaf, where they spit them out. Their spit adhered them to the leaf by their little heads. They will wiggle and squirm until they grow large enough and strong enough to pop off. At that point, they will be ready for food.

Their first food will be brine shrimp. I brought out the shrimp hatchery today and added eggs. In about 36 hours, I will have the first of the shrimp hatching. They are the other things small enough for the tiny baby angels to eat. It will be their staple food for several weeks and will ensure they grow big and strong.
