Angelfish in Miniature

The angelfish in Lindsay Buckingfish's and Stevie Fishnick's tank are now five weeks old. They are beginning to look like miniature versions of their parents. It's during this time that their colors really begin to form. Each one is so unique, from the black ones who have their Papa's marbling to the lighter ones that have a variety of markings from light to dark and from a little to a lot.

It is now that their vertical fins really begin to grow. The largest and tallest ones will be the males, most likely, while the most petite ones are most likely females.

The video shown here was taken during feeding time.
