Close-up photography of developing tropical Angelfish fry


 My daughter Annie and I used to breed and raise tropical angelfish. These pages contain images from our close-up photography of our fish.
 

My hobbies include water color painting, breeding freshwater tropical Angelfish (with my daughter Annie), and close-up photography of our fish. We became interested in photography in order to learn more about the larval stage and early development of our Angelfish. We do our close-up photography with standard Nikon F1 lenses and extension rings.

Once the fry are free swimming (in four to five days depending on the temperature) they will need to eat.

On a diet of freshly hatched brine shrimp, the young fry grow very quickly.
