A guppy update

I'm as anxious about the guppies as I am about my own babies. We're gearing up for a big road trip and I'm worried about how well they will fare in the nursery while we're away. I'm worried about how well they will fare if they're not in the nursery.

The guppies are 2 weeks old and they have a 100% survival rate. In the spirit of letting the offspring live dangerously, I've just let half of them loose into general population. We'll see how they do over the next few days. I'll likely let the rest of them loose by Monday....unless the cannibal parents dine on all of the ones I've released. Then I'll definitely risk their safety in the confines of the nursery.

And for those who have been following the saga all along: The sole survivor of the first litter/brood is doing fine and dandy.

I love these guppy dramas. I imagine some good soap opera music and a title sequence like "As the Aquarium Bubbles" or "Days of Our Guppies". Hee hee.

BTW, I really enjoyed our Bible study and chat on Saturday. I SOOOO needed that!

Have a great trip!!!! I'll miss you!

Thanks Jeanette! I am so glad to have you as a study partner.

I'll be posting an update on the Guppy drama before I leave town.
