March and April have been quite interesting on the fry front. I moved the java moss from the gardneri killifish pair’s tank into the daphnia tank in February. In the beginning of March, I discovered a FRY in the daphnia tank. Plenty of things for him to eat in there between the algae, the things living in the algae and the daphnia as he gets bigger.

The shocker this week was when we were getting ready to drain the half moon tank in the office and Phil discovered a single Pseudomugil furcatus fry swimming around freely. I suppose, since we moved the adults and the Endler fry into the hex tank, there is nothing it needs to worry about.

SO there you go! We can’t hatch fry intentionally to save our lives, but these accidental ones are great. Does put a damper on moving this tank for now, but we are smart people and can figure something out.
