    We woke up to swimming sugar granules in the Blue Acara tank today. They are such great parents, wow. After reading about Tiger Barbs parenting, or lack there of this is really nice to see. Will try to get pics but they are so so small. Will keep you all posted.

    They are so small right now that I doubt the cam will pick them up, but once they are big enough for that we will defiantly post them.

    Here are pics of Mommy and Daddy....

    This is Daddy protecting the babies and fanning them.

    This is Mommy chasing off other tank mates. She keeps the other 3 Acara in a corner of the tank lol. We are hoping the 50g shows up for them sooner than later, I am sure their tank mates are too...
