This post isn’t entirely paranormal related, but hold on to your boot straps.
Eddie and I are off of work tomorrow and that works out perfectly because this is the last full day of the full moon and neither of us are staying up Sunday night to talk to people. Right now, as I am typing this it is only a little chilly outside, hopefully mother earth doesn’t start the water works or blow us away with gale force winds. So we’ll have something up later this week after we review the footage.
On a non-paranormal note, earlier today I noticed a strange white tube coming out of the belly of my convict cichlid. This was not fish poop, I know exactly what that looks like. So I looked up the breeding rituals of convict cichlids and it was an egg tube… for laying eggs. They also dig craters when they are getting ready to drop some embryos. And there is one of those as well in the Zen garden portion of my 60 gallon tank that all of the cichlids are in. We’ve only had the cichlids for a few months and I didn’t think any of them were mature enough to breed. Although since we got them they all have doubled in size. So I’m watching my cichlid Calamity, formerly Capone, dig her crater all the while having her tube hanging out; and the Fire peacock cichlid we have was hanging around her like a proud papa. Then the evening rolls around and she begins chasing him away. I thought ‘ok, he’s angered mama bear some how.” This was not the case, she then let her eggs out, in the crater she dug. And that is when Paul, our Blood Parrot Cichlid, starts helping her fan the eggs (another thing convicts do when they breed), and chasing away the other tank mates.
At first I thought the fire peacock was the daddy, but then Paul started exhibiting signs of a parent. Not to mention the other peacock cichlid got a plump belly around the same time as Calamity. So I don’t know with these fish anymore, but we’ll see what happens. If the eggs were fertilized the babies will either be super ugly or super cool looking. I’ll have to post pictures later the tank light has turned off and they are resting.
I know how to keep them happy and healthy, but not breed them. let alone interbreed them.
