Fish Stack Lightning

Some fish, like the Corys, are shy of the paparazzi but not these three. Netty is the bulbous bellied beacon, grumpy Mr C is sandwiched in the middle and George is manfully supporting the stack. Fish are sooo clever and what great balance…

Corys are Fun

Well I’ve tried to take a decent picture of the three Corys but they are toying with me! They play together most of the time and flit in and out of the water flow bubbles. Sometimes one will wander off and then regroup quickly with the other two. They are funny, wriggly fish and don’t mind bumping into one another or overlapping when they settle somewhere. At times they group together and seem to sit on the gravel and stay really still….until I point the camera. You can see a couple of them on the left but I’m still working on a clear picture.

Platy Fry-Up!

Minnie, Lemony Snicket (pictured with dark fry shadow on her transparent belly, oh and the start of a fishpoop) and Netty are fit to burst! They are all spending a bit of time nestling in plants or hovering (yeah, fish hover) in one place for a while. I don’t think their bellies can stretch any more…. I’ve ordered a floating plant so that will complete my efforts to provide hiding places for any that survive greedy mouths….. Come on girls!
