I have baby dots
« on: July 09, 2018, 04:09:30 PM »
I put a huge container outside and put young shots and a pair of Dots in it.  The same thing that happened last year appears to be happening this year.  The little snots are growing and the Dots have made babies.  I'm excited about the Dots. Even though I know that they are that they are considered to be almost worthless, I sure do love them.

...yes, that's what she calls them...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

So far I only see 2 (?) but there is always a bubble nest so surely their must be more.  Dennis, when the weather cools off you can consider them yours.

my baby dots are gone now.  I only had two.  I must be doing something wrong. 

There is always a bubble nest but I never catch the pair in the act.  I think I'll remove the female and see how it goes.

Pretty hard to get more babies with the female gone.

I'm not afraid of work.  I can lay down right next to it and go to sleep.

There is always a bubble nest that the male guards.  I think that the female my be eating the young fry.
