Invisible Babies

It's been about a week since Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick had their newest batch of angel babies. During this stage, I call the fry "invisible fish" because they begin to hide in the gravel and in the plants.

Professional breeders do not have gravel in their tanks, which makes it much easier to do water changes. I have one infant tank without gravel and this one with gravel.

It will take several more weeks before these torpedo-shaped babies begin to assume the shape of an angelfish.

Invisible is definitely the word, so hard to spot

Now you know why Mummy is so reluctant to change their water. It sure would be easy to suck up some of those babies and never even know it! Having a tank without the gravel makes it much easier to spot them.
