Farlowella acus

  • One pic is of the father guarding the eggs. One of the babies is hatched and attached to the water intake tube above the eggs. If you look at the eggs, you can see the babies curled up inside. The other is of a baby that is about 2 weeks old from the most recent batch. I counted 9 surviving babies yesterday. They are about 2 cm long. I have never seen babies so well developed at hatching. At two weeks, you can see their elongated snout, strips, and mouth. It's just amazing to see the underside of one feeding on the glass.
