I'm not sure if ya'll will remember me. Last summer, I posted some
stories of the freshwater reef I built in the Susquehanna River.
Including stories of the three catfish, named Larry, Moe and Curly/
It seems I had the sex wrong on at least one of those fish because
Moe is currently sitting on a next of a couple thousand squirming
babies and curly is laying up near by.
A couple questions? Is it the male or female who is on the nest?
How long, from hatching, will the babies stay in the nest. Thanks!
BTW...The bass i named Leftie has not returned to the reef this year
and I miss her.
