Well these are my options. Breed to my koi pk, with possible start to hmpk line in f2, breed to her sibling peanut who's fins are not fully mature, or get a hm from my lfs to breed her to if she likes him. What do you guys think? Or will I just have to wait until peanut matures more? He is 4 months. I'd really like to get a spawn under my belt

A hm/PK cross would get a lot of variety in the fins... I'm kind of confused about the possible pairings.

Did you hear about last nights disaster?

Yes I heard. I actually replied. I'm really sorry about all the losses. Pretty irresponsible of them. I don't really like asking for answers in a case like this when it should be focused on the disaster.

But, you wouldn't reccomend hm x pk.

No, actually, I would. You will have a "transitional" generation in f1, then you can get hmpk and hm in f2. Hmpks are awesome.

Ok. I think I might try it out. Thanks for the help. And again sorry about the deaths. I hope it never happens again. The shippers got some explaining to do when you complain.

Matt is correct. Its a good idea and can bring qualities of both. Its been done in the past to improve lines.

She's really intersted in him. He's flaring up and wagging for her too. He's still exploring the tank though. He'll flare at her them swim away to explore and come back to show off some more. She has some v bars to.

Made a mistake by leaving her floating unattended. Well her jar tipped and she swam through a tiny hole in the top. Came back to find her swimming in the tank. Thankfully nothing too ba happened and I got her out before too much damage. Just 2 tears in her anal fin.
