Unexpected Pregnancy

Nature is a funny thing. You go to the aquarium and buy 12 female fish. You don’t give them names because, lets get serious here – it’s pretty damn hard to tell plain orange fish apart.

So you leave the girls unattended for a while without any parental supervision and then… You wake up one morning to find several baby fish swimming around the tank just beckoning the bigger fish to mistaken them for food.

Something about this whole situation seems a bit fishy to me!


This is the mummy fish (maybe) I can’t tell them apart


This is taken with the same lens at the same distance (so you can see the size difference)


This is a baby fish near the tiny pebbles at the bottom of the tank – fish food is bigger than it!
