    forse, I might try breeding again for the right fish species...at the right time. But I am still happy to see my 2 little loaches! Both were on the front glass just now munching on algae.

    Update: I saw both fry today & they seem to be growing faster than I remember others doing. They're almost too big for the danios' mouths now, whew!, I've been a bit worried.

    I've been putting off weeding this tank more but I need to do it soon. Jungle vals are moving along the front glass, duckweed is clogging the prefilters & blocking the light; java moss needs some heavy removal. But I feel safe to do it soon.

    Happy New Year!

    & now I see 4 sewellia fry!! All on the front glass :D 2 are slightly larger, 1 a tiny bit smaller & # 4 even smaller. Could there be more?!? Their best fry "yield" yet.

    & a female is going all "fluttery fins" near an adult male :cool:. I'm not sure what that means, maybe more eggs/fry coming soon!?! I've never seen them breed...:rolleyes:

    My husband did a major water change yesterday while I was out doing errands, what a great helper I have, lol. Just another reason not to keep a "too meticulously clean" tank; clean water, yes, but lots of plants & algae growth plus the "micro-fauna" on them too.

    I'm thrilled!!

    Thanks guys! & I just saw a fifth fry! All on the front glass at the "far corner" end again. I'm glad this tank is next to my computer or I might miss all the cuteness action :D

    It's funny, 2 of the bigger fry & 2 small are starting to get the "hillstream shape" fins, but 1 of the largest still has short "baby fins". I wonder if that's a sex difference...

    I'm not even going to try to get pics of this batch. There's a ton of algae/micro-fauna/food I want to leave for them. Here's 1 (or is it 2 ?) earlier sewellia loach fry, photography isn't my hobby as you can tell.
