Aangename verrassing

Vandag is dit 'n nie-kwilt blog inskrywing. Bloot omdat dit net sulke goeie nuus is wat ek graag wil deel. Ek het 'n vistenk en tans is daar Zebra Danio en Platy visse in. Die laaste twee naweke het vir my groot verrassing ingehou...

Today is a non-quilting blog entry. Mostly because I have such good news that I want to share with all. I have a fish tank with Zebra Danio and Platy fish. The last two weekends held a big surprise for me...

(Die foto's in ongelukkig nie baie goed nie / The photos are not very good, sorry)


(Julle sal dalk die op die foto's moet kliek om dit groter te maak om die vissies te kan sien / You might have to click on the photo to make it bigger in order to see the fry)

In die laaste week het my Zebra Danio's besluit om te broei - spontaan! Ek het hulle maar slegs sedert Mei. Dit was belis nie my beplaning om te broei nie, maar ek is in die sewende hemel aangesien daar byne 10 baba vissies is (hulle is op hierdie stadium te klein om akkuraat te tel, dus kan dit meer of minder wees). Ek en Manlief het vanoggend byna 'n uur spandeer om die kleintjies te vang en in die broeinet te plaas. Verlede naweek het ons 'n kleintjie gevang uit 'n vorige broeisel en dit was alreeds 'n verrassing.

In the last week, my Zebra Danio's decided to spawn - spontaneously! I only have them since May. It was not my intention to breed, but I am ecstatic since there is almost 10 fry (at this stage they are too small to count accurately, so there can be more or less). Hubby and I spend nearly an hour this morning to catch the youngsters and place them in the breeding net. Last weekend we caught a baby as well, but from another spawning. That in itself was already a surprise.

Die net gaan vir die volgende rukkie hul tuiste wees, totdat hulle groot genoeg is om tussen die volwasse visse te swem. Dit sal vir my 'n groot plesier wees indien meeste van hulle oorleef.

Tot later!

The net will be their home for the next while, until they are big enough to swim with the adult fish. It will be a great pleasure if most of them survive.

Until later!
