Here are a few highlights from post-meeting evenings out in Göttingen.
Gänseliesel—the most kissed girl in the world!
Three of my favs: Albena, sushi, and dunkelweizen.
Dinner with lovely Iliana. I seem very perplexed by my fork.
The Sheets system has a lot more fish now than when it started.
Mostly transplants from Oregon. Like me.
I’m going to a conference and will be away from the fishies longer than I’ve ever been before.
The fry need special food and care, so I made sure to clearly label the nursery for my fish-sitter.
The first batch of babies are nearly full grown — at 6-and-a-half weeks they look like little adults.
Here’s an action shot of them eating breakfast.
In a few weeks they will be sexually mature and ready to spawn. In the meantime…
20-day-old zebrafish. They’re big enough for me to capture a bit more detail with my low res camera. Note how their bodies are beginning to look more fish-like.
Behold - the first fry on the Sheets system nursery!
These fry are 9- days-old and have grown quite a bit in the last week (but are still quite tiny). My camera-phone photo does not do them justice.
