Blub Blub - Baby FIsh

A few Christmases ago, I was given a fish tank and all the fixings to set it up! Since I got it, I've had several different kinds of fresh water, community fish. More recently, I've had a few Fancy Guppies. To my delight and dismay, my guppies had babies! There were 6 babies that were so tiny I was baffled that they were able to swim around and eat on their own! I discovered the babies when I went to feed their parents, and I thought that a few of the flakes of fish food were a different color, which seemed odd to me. Then, when I looked closer, I saw that they weren't flakes they were fish. It was fairly late at night, but I woke up my family members and my boyfriend so that they would come and see how cute they were.

When it comes to fish, they typically have a high mortality rate, so I wasn't expecting all of them to survive. Especially considering that Guppies will eat their own young. However, they all made it! They're all Frys! They've just started to gain their colors, and are hiding less and less from their parents.

After going on a road trip with my mom for the weekend, we came home to find that my fish had had 4 more babies in addition to the original 6.


The thing is, I only have a 10 gallon fish tank, which means that I don't have enough space for 10 new babies and my original fish. So I then began the search for fish owners that would take in my little fish. I haven't found anyone yet, but I'm still hopeful!

I tried to take photos of them to show you all, but it's extremely hard to take a good photo of fish on a phone when they keep swimming around. To make things harder, they all currently blend in pretty well with the type of rocks I have in my tank. Maybe I'll be able to get some photos once they're grown (If I haven't given them away yet)
