Fish tank fertility

Posted in Pure weirdness at 7:44 am by Erin

I swear that all the fertility vibes in our house are centered around our aquarium.  Yesterday we had snail eggs, which will apparently take a few weeks to hatch if they were fertilized.  This morning, P and I were feeding the fish when we noticed 2 baby platys swimming around.  One is all orange, the other is mostly orange with black fins and tail.  Tiny, tiny little things, only a couple of millimeters long.  I rescued them (the dalmation fish were looking at them and licking their chops–or would have been, if they had tongues) and put them in the separate chamber to keep them safe while they grow.

I told J that from now on, we can only do it around the fish tank.
