A Family of Convicts

No, it’s not what you think! Two of our fish, called convicts (named for their black stripes), had babies a couple weeks ago! It took me this long to figure out how to post video.

With this particular breed of fish, mating pairs become lifelong mates and both mom and dad take care of the kids.  Somehow, we ended up with two mating pairs. This is our second hatching (for lack of a better term). I considered naming this post, “Even the fish are mocking us.” 🙂

Sorry about the blurry video, but aren’t they cute?


  1. Hey, YouTube won’t let me watch the video. It says it’s private 😦

  2. I love convicts! (But I can’t see the video either!)

    • Sorry! Try it now.

  3. I can’t belive how tiny they are!
