Brackish 20 Long Chesapeake Bay Aquarium

Update: I just completed a water change, and afterwards sat down to check on everything. I noticed that my skilletfish laid another batch of eggs, the third batch in two weeks. Also, my blennies laid eggs last night or this morning again. I wondered what happened to the older skilletfish eggs as they seemed to disappear...
...well, a few minutes later, I found out...I found fry swimming around my tank, most likely skilletfish but could be blennies, I guess. They're about 3/16 of an inch long right now. I think that a few went down the drain with the water change, I suspect!

Congrats, Papa! Whatcha gonna do with all those fry? Don't forget to fill out a BAP form, once you know who the new kids are!

The skilletfish lay eggs weekly now. The blennies lay them about every three weeks that I can tell. The fish fry from either species hang around for a few days and become fish food, I suspect. All of the fish are really fat these days!
I love this picture, male striped blenny, Chasmodes bosquianus, lookin' right at'cha!:
