We Had Another Quiet Day,

and did not go out,

 but we had a nice surprise when we turned the aquarium lights on,

 the angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) had spawned again,

the parents take turns in fanning them, that is to stop debris from falling on to the eggs and provide fresh oxygenated water over them, 

and looking after the eggs, making sure the other fish do not have a free meal! so tomorrow we will see if they, the eggs, are still there, as an aside the bright white eggs are infertile, that is the female laid them but the male missed fertilising them, if they hatch the parents will look after the fry for a few weeks until they spawn again, but I have a feeling that tomorrow the eggs will be gone,

after our evening meal it was feet up for Bargain Hunt, a couple from Judge Judy then three more from Black Sails, the series just keeps getting better, and with that we were off to bed.
