    Baby Johanni Mbuna in a breeder trap, the mother was holding on to the fry much longer than she should have and she'd not eaten for over 30 days, so I netted her and put a cocktail stick to prise her mouth open in order for her to spit out the fry, first time she's bred and only 11 babies but it's a start, I'll get a bigger trap and grow them on until they can be released in to the big tank.

    This is what mum looks like, and the fry.

    Well done Ally, it is very difficult to get them to breed in captivity. Nice that fish have a valentines day too!

    Excellent reading gents just heard a family from Argentina has bought the old convent in town to turn into a B&B and the man in the house is going to set up a sword fishing boat.
