    I came home and found 4 fry from my sailfin Molly which I posted about her being ready any day. :)

    I let her stay in the main tank and she goes into the plants to deliver the fry. Since my tank is a hex... I have to wait for any fry to reach the surface to rescue them. I think I've managed to save 6 so far!

    It's so exciting!

    No kidding Nut! I know now what to watch for with her. She likes to hold them a little longer or more likely... I'm not patient enough. Lol
    They look healthy and so cute. :)

    My floating hornwort saved another 5 I just saved. My breeder net is getting full!

    Half of them were last night. It was bedtime when I rescued some and was on my way to work this morning and most in the nursery were eating when I fed them. I have them in a breeder net within the main tank and there is one small swordtail fry (rescued from my filter) and some two week old guppy fry.

    They are all pinkish color but doesn't take long for the orange to show thru. :)
