So last week I came home from work and found some eggs in my 10 gallon tank (they haven't hatched). Today I came home from work and found two baby swordtails in my 55 gallon tank! I did not have a breeder box so I captured one and suspended it in my fishnet so I could drive 40 miles to the pet store and pick one up! Got home, put him in the breeder box, checked in on him a little bit later and he had escaped the breeder box. Fortunately, I found him again hiding in a plant, so he is safely back in the breeder box, hopefully it is secure this time. After that little escapade, he's got his name: Houdini! How a baby could escape a box specifically designed to hold babys is beyond me. I'm hoping to relocate the other baby, maybe he's just hiding in a plant or in the rocks. I'm not sure what's in my water, but this is fun!!!
