    After finding the eggs in my Y. splendida tank everyone has been asking for photos so this afternoon I went down the shed and took some photos, oh was I in for a surprise.

    This is the best pic I could get of the eggs in the pipe, I moved a cobble and you can just make out a very blurry greed spot in the circle (20 pics and this is the most in focus

    I then got a photo of the tank itself

    The pipes in the first pic are at the far end of the tank, the reason why the circle is in this photo is because I took several shot to show the density of the root ball of that clump of java fern in the middle of the tank, it was only when I brought the pics up on the pc that I spotted something where that circle is

    Right in the middle of that cobble is what I thought was at first a left over mysis shrimp case but I haven’t fed mysis for a few days after looking closer it is in fact a baby fish and there are only splendida in that tank /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” /> /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />

    I went straight back to the tank and it had moved under the root a bit more but it is definitely a very young fish.

    Good show Mark, maybe best to just leave the eggs alone eh?

    Thanks Jim, yeah the eggs are staying put, see what happens.

    I think I was paranoid that if they hatched they would be eaten straight away, this maybe the case but I now know that at least one from a previous spawning has survived so survival of the fittest.

    Yeah the adults are still in Matt, there would be no way of removing them without stripping out all of the cobbles, the way the adults go at food I think it wil be a long time before anything ventures out in to open water.

    Thanks random, I am keeping my eyes open for anymore fry and hopefully a better photo

    I wonder if the better quarantined higher priced fish from Peterborough bred faster? /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” /> /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” /> /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />

    I cant comment on any other fish but it was the price of yours that allowed this to happen, that was the only way I could ever have afforded such a good sized group
