Fish Tank: October 2005 Archives

Swapped the seven two day old babies for two adults. Hope the babies will be ok with half a dozen other adults in the little tank. Will have to go and visit them from time to time.

Krib loneliness

So I noticed my papa krib (who spends his entire life hidden in his cave) was thoroughly emaciated tonight. And mama krib hasn't been happy for ages either, and also looked a bit thin. So I decided to move mama into the big tank with papa. Papa's still in his cave. Mama was even in there with him for a while, but she's out again at the moment. Hope they both do ok.

I noticed this morning that mum was looking very big, and wondered when she'd be popping. Well she popped this afternoon some time. At least 10-11 babies we counted. Was very excited :):):) I saw one get eaten by a krib, so fished out (pardon the pun heh) five of them and put them in a bucket. I somehow doubt any of the others will survive. But if the five rescued ones survive til Friday I'll probably take them up to Merideth who is inheriting another tank (from the dude who I originally got the guppies off in the first place).

May need to invest in a baby chamber tank for future generations though :)
