The Jack Dempsey Fry are curious little creatures at 7 day old. They stay in the cave at night and explore the aquarium during the day time.
The mother kept a lookout for any danger, and as soon as she stirs they would follow her.
They form a school or group that blankets the area as they explore the aquarium. This is where we hear the term fish schooling. Schools help the young explorers to sense all the features of aquarium such as caves, rock formations and foliage.
Wow there’s so many of them!
I never knew they refer to the babies as “fry”. Fish an fry makes me think of fishcakes. Especially the Lao/Thai ones with lots of lemongrass. 🙂
Cambree, the mother hid them well the first 5 days, I didn’t think they’ve survived at first. Lee saw the post and she was upset that I would fry the fish. 🙂
What’s Bo planning to do with all the baby fish? will he keep them or find them new home?
Hi salalao, I think he might try to sell some of them, but I’m sure he will give some away also. He knew a pet store owns by a Thai lady that might be interested in buying from him but that might be 4 months from now. As for now, he is turning our house into a fish aquarium. 🙂
Lol, your daughter is so cute. I would of think the same if I didn’t read the first post about the Jack Dempsey’s. The Jack Dempsey Fry are so adorable, it is amazing to see how these fishes grow. Do keep these update coming, I’m enjoying it. Thank you!
Lala, Fry is a very strange term for baby fish and something that we don’t come across very often. Bo takes good care of them and they are doing well. I will do another update this weekend. 🙂
WOW – so MANY Jack Dempsey Fry! You will need a lot of aquariums soon 😉
truels, our house sounds like a waterfall now. 🙂
