The Jack Dempsey Fry are 12 day old and they look very healthy. Bo has been extremely busy caring for them making sure that the aquarium water is at the right PH level, at the right temperature and that it is clean.
Mother Jack Dempsey is very protective and takes good care of her Fry. Since Bo moved the male Jack Dempsey to another aquarium the female lips is healing nicely.
She kept a watchful eye on me the whole time.
The Fry are still very tiny at 12 day old. Bo has been feeding them liquid and powder food.
It is interesting to watch them sleep at night. The Fry pile up like a cotton ball and the mother stays nearby. I didn’t get a good shot here and didn’t want to disturb them while they are resting.
