Fish Tank Love  

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

When I got home last nite from my much needed nail appt the girls wanted me to come see the fish tank. We have 3 gold fish 1 Shebunkin and a plecostomus. All of them are 5 to 7 years old. Well, I went to the tank and there's hundreds and hundreds of little brown balls all over the tank. Some were floating on top and some were laying on the bottom and some were floating all over the tank. It looked like one of the kids had dumped the whole can of food into the tank.

On closer inspection tho it was clear that the shebunkin (it has a black spot above the eye's so I named it spot, had no idea it was a female) was poopin out eggs like there was no tomorrow. It was verrryyy educational for the kids. The other 3 fish would follow her around and attempt to fertilize the eggs as they were expelled. eeww fish sex. We don't know if any of the eggs will be viable but, with our luck we will be calling the pet store soon to see if we can unload the babies.

So, the tank is a disaster area and now I have to clean up and I didn't even get a happy ending.

    Hey Molly

    Just one more reason not to drink tap water... LoL
    The big question was were you ready for the Tuesday night sex talk?? hehehehe ~ Can you clean the tank without harming the potential babies or do you just have to leave things until some are born
