    Some piccies for you!!
    They spawned yesterday and my two boys who were fighting for Hermionie's affections have sustained some injuries, which I am treating...also my lady Paradise fish has taken it into her head that she must guard the hatchery!! Its fun to watch and looks like she is baby sitting!!

    Your fantails are gorgeous! I just adore them - such pretty coloration and they look like you spoil them rotten. So healthy! :D

    Thank you!!! thats such a lovely thing to say!! *blushes*

    I do spoil them a bit!! but I am totally addicted to my fishies! I love them all!! They love all kinds of fruit and veg, shelled peas and oranges with the pith removed as they dont like that! Kiwi fruit, banana and soft, over ripe mellon!...and now I have about 20 fantail eggs too!!! and am busy cycling a seperate tank for those that hatch!:goldfish:

    Thank you crashlee!!! So glad you like him!

    I will try and get a piccy of him "displaying" his magnificent tail!! He opens his tail wide when Ginny aproaches him and it looks realy impressive! He inflates his gills too to show how big he is, and with his spotted gills it can look like he has an extra pair of eyes!!

    In this piccy Hemionie and Albus snuggle up!!!

    [​IMG]

    And this is baby Bartie who wants to say hello!

    Sorry the piccy is fuzzy but he moves soooo fast!!

    Aw, they're so cute. I had a batch of babies too - there's a log of it in the stickies of the coldwater section. It's a HUGE, HUGE amount of work, but it's totally worth it. Good luck with them! :D
