ugh just when i thought things were going good for this spawn. i was cleaning the tank and saw velvet on some fish. they look healthy other then that. i am treating with coppersafe and salt. also covering the tank with a towel to block out light.

i put in 1 tsp salt/ 1 gallon water. normally i would put 2 so its half dose.
i put in 3 tsp coppersafe. its a 15 gal tank and its about 13 gallons full i think. the label says 1 tsp for 4 gallons so not quite the full dose. if anything ill add a 1/4 tsp more tmr if the fish look ok.

looks like they have recovered from velvet without losing any. i am crossing my fingers. yesterday i added another 1/4 tsp to make it a full dose of coppersafe. my 15gal is not all the way full. they already look good but i will leave them in the coppersafe for another day.

then i will watch them for another week and if all is good move them to a 55gal for grow out and see what happens.

they grew to adults. but I was not happy with results. had only a few keepers. some had the rose tail bad scaling. dorsal was too narrow

I liked one of the marbles so I kept her and out crossed to a blue grizzle male I had with less branching but has dt gene to improve dorsal. they are only half inch atm so cant tell what they will look like.

here I learned that the female has so much to do with the final look. male seems to have a big effect on branching and shape of body.
