|New addition to the family|
I'm just so excited to find the new batch of babies just born into the tank. This new guy was birth sometime last night to today. He or she is a young Red Wine/Ruby Red in training. The tank is starting to really get homey for all these guys as mommas start releasing her babies.
Newly born babies have a tendency to stay put to where they originally hatched. This sort of behavior usually last a few days for newly born babies as they need the time to situate themselves. This means you'll definitely want to have a nicely filled tank where babies feel safe and secure. This is why I like moss and tend to have a lot of moss inside my tanks. Fluffier moss like Fissidens is great because it offers a lot of folds where babies can snuggly hide between. As they reach the week old mark, they will start moving around and explore their new world. I'm spotting a few more newly hatched babies and they're all so CUTE!
