Jack Dempsey Fry 13 Week Old

The Jack Dempsey Fry are 13 week old.  This is Bo’s hand and as you can see that some Fry are bigger than others.  I’m glad that they are not piranhas, otherwise they would have feasted on his hand.

Lee was feeding them brine shrimps.

They moved so fast that I had to bump my ISO to 6400 so the image below is grainy.

The moon has risen by the time I got home. This is a 10 seconds long exposure, I had it set on self-timer and a tripod is a must. I was surprised to see lens flare at the bottom near the window, this image is not so bad in comparison to a few that I took.  I don’t know how to control this, I tried the lens hood but it didn’t help.

  1. They are getting much bigger. Lee must enjoy having so much pet fishes. 🙂

    I heard that in China and Japan they have salons where you dip your toes into a pool of small fishes that nip on your feet. Some say they get a good feet cleaning that way. Not sure if I would try it.

    • Cambree, I have heard about the fish spa, not sure if I would like it either. some of the bigger ones are almost ready to go to their new homes. Bo promised several people that he would give them. And one little boy already asked for his, he came trick or treat for the fish on Halloween. 🙂
