Sturisoma Aureum Day Three

The eggs from the pair of Sturisoma Aureum are developing well, the embryos are developing well in the eggs, and you can see the “eyes”. Here is a picture at Day three after lay. There are approximately 100 eggs. If you compare earlier pictures, with this photograph, you will notice a difference, these have become much darker as the embryos grow and develop.

It was lucky I caught the male parent fish, feeding, and away from the eggs chasing the female away. The male fish is usually guarding the eggs and fanning them constantly. Sorry about the quality, I’ll try and get a better in focus shot, But I was more concerend in getting a shot, so I could count the eggs.
