What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Lefty and Digitalis still have at least 60 surviving fry.  They are getting larger each day and there is quite a size discrepancy between the largest and smallest fry.  The largest fry are eating smallish mosquito larvae that I have begun catching outside in a water feature in the front yard.  The fry are over one month old.

Boris and Media Luna started laying eggs this afternoon.  They have begun laying on the glass despite the fact that I cleaned off the filter intake tube yesterday, removing all the algae.  Yesterday I cleaned the filter and changed about a third of the water.  Last week I fed live Tubifex Worms to all three aquariums.

Any eggs that drop from the glass are getting eaten by Media Luna.
