New Year Surprise

Look what happened on New Years Eve.


Mum's fish had babies, tonnes of them.
They're very tiny so you may need to click on the photo to enlarge it in order to see them better.

They're Geophagus sp. Tapajos commonly known as Red head or Orange Head here in Australia. They grow to be about 10 inches long so we won't be able to keep them unfortunately.

That is very cool Gizmo. Baby fishies. Geophagus? That sounds like esophagus. How funny! And they will grow to be 10 inches. Wow. Have fun watching them before they go away.

Hi Gizmo!
I saw you on DWB and wanted to stop in and say hello! Those baby fishies are soo cute! My owner girl used to have guppies, they had babies all the time, but they weren't nearly as cool as that big fish you have!

What a great surprise on NYE to see all those cute baby fishes! Will your mum be finding new homes for all of them?

Wow, Gizmo, that's a lot of fish! Mom said they would be fun to watch. I was wondering how they taste?? :)
