Quilt With Us

I thought that when I separated the female and male gerbils that I would be done with babies.  


Then I looked in my fish tank tonight and there are at least ten baby guppies swimming around!  I thought that the males had killed the one female guppy, and bought five more females yesterday….LOL.  Apparently, I thought wrong!  She must have been hiding somewhere in the tank, just like those scarlet shrimp are always hiding.


Anyways, Happy New Year to everyone.  Many happy quilting hours in 2011!!!!!

Wow, I would have never guessed that they could be so aggressive.  I remember my 1st tank.  Neon tetras, zebra danios, and one betta.  One of the danios turned out to be a female that grew larger than all the rest.  Pretty soon the betta didn't have any fins and drowned.  And then I was finding neons that had suicided out the back of the tank.  I took that last remaining danio to a fish store and had them feed it to their piranha…LOL.  


I didn't realize that fish could live so long (yoa?) - what is their life span?

I have a lone African cichlid...notorious for being aggressive, I started with 8 young fish and as they grew, one male (a Melandia Crabro) harrassed all but one to death, then that one (Melanochromis Johannii) beat the Crabro up.  So, Johannii is alone and has been for six years (he's 9 y.o.). I keep a mirror against his tank to keep his colors bright. He likes to show off & fight with his reflection. LOL. Who would think such little creatures have such interesting personalities.

I'm so glad that they are your guppies. I haven't had fish since I was a kid, but I remember takaing care of them. Fascinating little creatures to watch.
