Well, maybe soon I will be able to tell you about going to the Sarah Palin Rally in Salem, VA last night - but honestly, I want to be able to get up pics and stuff from meeting Todd Palin, and the Sarah Palin rally soon...
And - I think this story is funnier
Remember the fish??
Well, it turns out that before the last fish died - he had completed his job of passing his genes along to the next generations.
His partner, is now great with child(ren)!
I started doing some research.
It turns out that Mickey Mouse Platys are able to be pregnant up for 8 times after one time of .... umm... getting pregnant.
Each of those 8 pregnancies can produce up to 85 "fry" (baby fish!)
Each pregnancy also takes about 30-35 days.
Basically, within 8 months we could be the proud owners of up to 750ish BABY FISH!!
I can only have 10 per 10 gallon tank.
So, how many of you want a fish??? I will soon have about 740 to give away. These are nice fish! Cost about $2.99 at PetSmart! Not your average goldfish! They have something looking like a Mickey Mouse head in their tail! Its GREAT for kids....
No, really, if we don't separate the mother from the fish within a few hours of her giving birth (yes, platys are one of the few fish that actually give live birth, they don't lay eggs) - she will eat all of the babies.
Motherhood at it's finest I guess.
And cheap fish food for us! (just kidding. sorta.)
I also, through this research have learned how to tell a boy little fish from a girl little fish. Things. I. Never. Thought. I. Needed. To. Know!
Well, life is never boring around here.
In other stories. My sister is having a boy!
