Waiting For Fish Babies

The Mummy fish is getting bigger and bigger, but still no signs of babies. We feel bad for her since she is in a compartment all by herself, and Husband fish is worried sick outside. He paces back and forth, following her around all day from the outside.
There is another tank just for babies that currently has 2 inhabitants. It's Killer Mom's kids! We sent Killer Mom back to the pet store and traded her for the new Mommy fish. Killer Mom was just far too aggressive, literally killing all the other fish off whenever she felt protective or upset. One of Killer Mom's kids (I call her Skinny) looks just like her! See the white one? The mum looked exactly the same (but way bigger and meaner). Bubbles, the greyish brown one, is lurking just behind. He's sort of rotund like a bubble. When he was teeny-weeny small, he really looked like a bubble! They're both still very tiny (about 2 cm). They just look big in this picture because I'm zoomed in.
Pineapple Bun looks like he's doing a jig in this picture, huh? What a cutie.
Tiggy is SUCH a photo-hog. When I bring the camera in, he goes right for it and he won't go away! Look at him!

This is Husband fish giving me the cold shoulder. He's not much into picture taking. He's only concerned about his wifey.

I hope you all have a great day!

Oh having fish babies is exciting! Thankfully a few survived the past go around in my aquarium and they're big enough now to where they aren't scared of the others. Its so much fun, and I love your fish!

I love your story...the pics are great! We have fish babies too...we did not know that they were on the way, they just sorta appeared one day.....we hope that they survive! They hide all the time and we can't catch them.

Beautiful little fish..
I used to have a fish tank and a cat. The cat spent much of her time laying across the back of the couch which butted up to the tank..one morning one of the fish was missing ~what was odd about it was that the cat refused to lay in her favorite perch for a very long time. Guilt, I suppose. :)

When I was little my friend had guppies that kept having babies. Last year i went on a trip down South and one day when I was out out snorkling one day a school of guppies swam right through me. It was really neat!!
