So. I went in last night to turn off the light in my brothers fishtank and saw something strange out of the corner of my eye. So I turned the light back on and what I saw made me sit down suddenly on the edge of his bed with my jaw practically on the floor.
Rodney and Shep have done it again
. And yes, I do mean literally. The tank is full of baby catfish.
This time though, I never saw the eggs, or the weird foetus things that came after the eggs hatched last time and which died/disappeared within a couple of days. Somehow I missed all that, and now there are actual baby catfish swimming around. I don't know how many cos I couldn't count them all, but I reckon at least 10.
I am seriously so amazed that they're there. I mean, I'm not amazed that Shep and Rodney have been at it again, I mean, it's a given, right, that they're at it all the time? But my brother's tank is really dirty and he hardly ever cleans it, so realistically, this shouldn't have happened. Then again, clearly McShep like it dirty and filthy, as do their offspring *grins* The dirtier the better apparently.
I'll keep you updated as to how this batch get on, and I'll try and get some pics up if they look like they're gonna make it this time ;)
Oh, and Rodney is swimming around as smugly as he usually does acting all blase, and Shep has hidden himself so far under the frickin' filter that I can't even see him. He damn well better stay there, I'm not over the shock yet and I'll be wanting serious words with him when he's brave enough to come out.
