8 days old

The background is a bit blurry because the male Farlowella is constantly fanning his eggs. The lighting is also not so good because I didn't want to blind my fish by putting a lot of flash on! Obviously I have to angle camera/light so that there is no reflection on the glass.

The male cleans an area (in this case the side of the aquarium) and the female Farlowella goes to him to lay her eggs. The male then fans and cleans the eggs constantly for about 10 days until they hatch.

I can't believe how well you've got on with your camera (now you've took it off auto!). This is a brilliant photo. Well done, good shot.

Oh wow! What a gorgeous shot! Very good details and very interesting... What does an adult Farlowella look like?

Good shot, very well caught.

Great idea to take this, really interesting and unusual, I love the way you can see the fish in the eggs (I think?!!)
