Zach came back from school holiday program on June 1st with lots of ‘longkang’ fish, but all died within a few days, except. That fish had a bloated stomach, and we though she was either pregnant or sick. If she were pregnant, I said, then she must be fighting to stay alive for her babies.
This morning, the kids ran excitedly into my room and announced, “Mummy, come see the babies!” I counted 10 live babies, n another 13 that had oredy died at bottom of tank. The amazing will of a mother to protect her babies… Even a mother fish 🙂 – Lil
