Can you see the 2 new fishies?
Green Bean and blurry "Tiny"
Abbie was very friendly and chatty with both of the fish departement guys that they gave us a free baby Marigold Variatus (platus & swordtail hybrid) fish! She was born by livebearer mommy (not via fish egg, but as a fry capable of swimming right upon birth) ! "Baby Tiny" was SO cute and tiny, just 1/2 inch and very big, ogling eyes (compared to his body size)!
Tiny is so cute! She waits by the other fishes who are eating bottom feeder algae wafers, and as the pieces float to her (from the water current), she snatches the tiny pieces and eats them! Smarty girl!

I learned that we cannot get too attached to pets, ESPecially fishes, 'cuz they die of ever reason imaginable! Food (too much), temperature, pH, fish fighting, skin sore/bacteria/diseases.... you name it! In 6 weeks I've gone to the fish store 25 times! But they are a pleasure to have, to watch, and even relaxing to behold. Cleaning fish tank has become my pastime and method of de-stressing!
