Angelfish Fry Swimming

The babies that hatched last week are doing great, and Stevie Fishnick (the platinum angel) and Lindsay Buckingfish (the black marble) prove yet again what great parents they are. They are constantly attentive to their babies' needs.

This is a small batch; I imagine there are around 36. They will remain with their parents until they grow to about the size of a dime. Then I will remove the parents to another tank, and continue caring for the babies until they are about 8-10 weeks old. At that time, they will go to the local pet shop to find their Forever Homes.
