Subject: RE: Baby SAEs

Liisa Sarakontu gave David excellent descriptions of how to tell baby SAEs 
from baby Flying Foxes.   Recently, I found 2 baby SAEs in a tank full of 
baby Flying Foxes.  Liisa's description did not mention what caught my eye 
and brought me back to the tank as I walked away.  The SAE's swam 
differently!  The two in the tank stayed together and did the SAE 
characteristic swimming near the glass wall against the current.  The FF 
were all over the tank.  When I noticed the swimming, I took a closer look 
and noticed the absence of the light color bar over the dark one.  I bought 
the two and after quarantining, they are happily with the 2 adult SAEs in 
the 125g show tank.
