    Ive noticed over the past few days a rather unusual feature in Jenks small bubblenests. Baby snails. I figured they were getting up in there on their own, until i was watching Jenks and noticed him chasing one that had floated away and put it back into his nest.


    I had to walk away. My fish give me headaches sometimes.

    I cant even look at his tank right now. I was wondering why he was getting so flarey at me when i do my daily "kill all the pond snails" quest. I somehow managed to get a cluster of eggs in there and i don't want more so they are getting removed manually before they are big enough to breed. Then i saw that.. Sigh. I need to get him a woman.

    Awww he's going to be a daddy! Do you think the kids will figure out they're adopted? ;)

    I have had betta males build a nest and act like they are looking for eggs or fry on the bottom of the tank (w/o finding any), especially males who have already spawned. Seems your guy found some babies to take care of. It is pretty funny, like my ex's cat who like to try to nurture hamsters.

    At least he knows what his potential job could be. I'd love some pictures of Jenks with his adopted offspring.
