Emmie Lou All Grown Up

Some of you might remember Emmie Lou, one of the baby angels born to Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick last year. It was during a period of time in which Lindsay and Stevie were laying eggs about every three weeks, and this batch didn't fare so well. In fact, Emmie Lou was the only surviving angelfish, so since my betta tank was empty at the time, I placed her in there. She was smaller than a dime when I removed her from her parents' tank.

Here is Emmie Lou today. She is about ten inches tall and has actually outgrown all the other angels in her tank.

Her best friend is a red-eyed spangle. Her name is Stevie; I had purchased her for Lindsay when Emmie Lou's mother passed away, but Lindsay had decided no more women. The two girls have become great friends.

This is Lindsay Buckingfish and Stevie Fishnick during happy times, caring for their eggs.
