Julies have had babies :-) #1
Saw some small things bobbing about in the Tang tank while I was having my tea. On closer inspection it seems a pair of my Julidochromis transcriptus have had babies

They're minuscule! Very hard to spot and I think these few just became free-swimming this evening so there may be more yet

Re: Julies have had babies :-) #4
They are so beautiful. How did you manage to spot them, with them being so small?

Congratulations to Mum and Dad.

Re: Julies have had babies :-) #5
We were eating our evening meal and watching TV, but the tank is to the right of it and I usually spend more time watching that than what's on "the box". I just saw some specks in the water moving in an odd manner, and sure enough when I checked more closely it was babies. They're only about 2mm long at the moment
