    Default Xenotoca doadrioi dropped fry yesterday


    3 Not allowed!
    Well, I've got a colony of xenotoca doadrioi (formerly known as xenotoca eisini San Marcos) at my place. And some females have dropped fry again yesterday. They're approx. 1cm (a bit less than ½ inch) long. This week more females will drop fry for some are quite squared off.

    Just like most goodeids you can leave those fry in the same tank as the adults. Most goodeids won't chase their offspring. Below you can see a picture of one of the fry that was born yetserday. Still having it's trophotaeniae which will be absorbed in 1-3 days and than the fry will seek for food itself.

    Overhere 2 other pregnant females. It won't take that long before these will drop fry as well.

    Just like most goodeids also newborn fry of this strain are large. As already mentioned today's fry are 1 cm in length. There was one which was slightly larger.
    Below shows a picture of a female where some real dark spots are clear at the gravid spot. It shows the eyes of the unborn fry.

    It's been very sunny today... so, I've put some fish in a small photo container and took some shots on the balcony.

    This topic has entered three times. So, sorry! Something must have gone wrong while posting.
    Could one of the admins remove the other two similar postings?

    Those are pretty impressive close-up shots! What kind of gear are you using to get so close?

    Thanks!
    I'm still using my old Fujifilm FinePix S5700 bridge camera to get the job done.
    It takes some practise with fish that just like to move around all the time to get a decent shot of them. And a lot of patience...!

    That's my problem; getting the darn things to hold still. They'll be sitting in one spot, motionless, and as soon as I snap the photo they've moved and blurred the shot!
