No, our baby has not yet arrived, however twenty-one of the tiniest little baby Mollies have joined our fish tank family! Doug’s intuition on Saturday proved correct, and his decision to move the mama fish into the little separate breeding box meant that this time around, many more than one little baby fish survived. We have no idea what we will do with these little guys–we certainly can’t keep them all–but they are very fun to watch.
Doug informed me yesterday that for this breed of fish, one insemination can result in up to four “batches” of babies. Wow.
