Tragedy! After 4 weeks, the last litter of our proud late heroine Mama Guppy were released into the tank. This is a full week older than the 1st was when she was released. There were almost 20 fry in the nursery. A nursery so thick with algae the walls were opaque. Solid green. No visibility.
In the midst of the green, the babies all seemed to be doing fine. The nursing staff definitely had their act together during this extended incubation period. There were a few (2 or 3) fry that seemed to be runts and it was clear that they might become collateral damage in the release. By "collateral damage" I mean "snack food" for the general population.
The horror! All but the runts are gone! Vanished! Nosh for the cannibals! I can't imagine that the few survivors will last through the weekend. Hansel & Gretel they are...being fattened up for tomorrow's dining pleasure.
Oh, the lack of humanity. Oh, the fish! Oh! Those Guppies!!!
