The Newly Renovated Honeymoon Suite

I wanted to separate Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick from their latest batch of babies before they began culling them - meaning before they began to decide who was fit to be their offspring and who was better off as sushi.

So I renovated their honeymoon suite, a 20-gallon tank directly above the Infant Tank but positioned where they could not see their babies.

In the beginning, they sulked. They clearly missed their babies and all the work that went into laying the eggs, transferring them to clean leaves to hang by their heads, and then vigorously defending them from me every time I went near the tank.

But I know the babies are much better off without their parents at this point. Tomorrow, learn why.
