I can now see what their future stripe pattern will look like along with blue fluorescent coloring in their scales. I am happy to say they are already eating other foods I give them so they are weening off the parents slime coat successfully. I had to remove the dad from the tank he was becoming aggressive.
The discus babies have detached from the driftwood and are now swimming around their parents like satellites as they eat the slime coat from them as food until they get bigger.
Successful fertilization has taken place, I can see their eyes and tails, soon they will start to swim and eat the slime coating off their parents until they get larger.
Hover your mouse and click on the gear click in the top right corner to see full resolution zoom then you can see each egg!
The coral pulses like this to catch food particles, it is very calming to watch.
The aquarium is an extension of the painting so the painting does not have a frame.
You can also see my 2 20 gallon tanks in my hallway, they are also freshwater.
I use a UV sterilizer in this aquarium, you can see it all the way in the right back of my tank. I really recommend one for bigger tanks It keeps the water crystal clear, kills parasites and algae, adds flow to tank.
To the top left I have an mag float algae scrubber which I recommend highly as well it changed my life.
I have seen the 2 detached legs begin to form 4 small legs and the mother starfish is growing back the two detached legs. Also green clown goby hiding in the corals, when the fish swim into some of the corals they quickly suck in to protect themselves the speed of it surprises people that haven’t observed it before.
My Tail Spot Blenny discovered he could dig himself a hiding spot by eating and spitting sand out, it is very fun to watch this little construction worker.
When I was looking at what he was doing I also noticed my Duncan coral sprouted 2 new heads! This has me very excited, along with also seeing growth in the majority of my corals.
My Tail Spot Blenny, I love his character and how he moves around deliberately instead of aimlessly swimming, he pokes his head up and down playing peekaboo all day he is very entertaining as well as beautiful.
This is one of my snails, his job is to dig up sand and he owns it.
