Ugh- I've had bronchitis for 8 days straight! Good to know I have company! Everything tastes like tinfoil, my ears are popping & nothing helps. I swear I'm going to cough up a lung! At least I'm losing weight (I hope).
I'm enjoying the "eye candy" factor in this post. Since my own spawn went bust, I can enjoy this one. I LOVE the bright blue color. While my banana male has blue mist streaks in his tail, I'd like to see a strong yellow & blue marble. I'm sure there's a genetic reason that this can't happen, like you can't have orange & black on a male cat b/c of the chromosome location... I'm rambling today & have SO MUCH tank maintenance when I'd rather be sleeping...

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

I totally know how you feel. I'm just getting over both Bronchitis and Laryngitis. Hope you feel better soon

happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.

Aww, Im sorry you have it too! I probably haven't lost much weight, but atleast I'm getting plenty of rest!

This spawn is kind of a bust IMO, It was really small, maybe about 30-40 max starting out and now I maybe have like 20 max from it, and since the dad passed away I really can't repeat to get a larger one or line breed to get better coloring. I guess we'll see how coloring turns out.

I'm sure that even with such a small number of fry, you'll have one just like daddy :)
And ever oyher one is going to be stunning!!!

So even if it's one fry or 500 this will be a good batch :)
Because your dad and mom was stunning so therefore the babies will definitely be

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Thanks alcemistnv. I'm sure they will be stunning, but it seems like most people are wanting one like dad, which I'm sure will be hard to accommodate because I'll most likely keep any that look like anything like him to keep the colors going, if there is even any that look like him. I have read a bit into color genetics and it seems most likely that I'll end up with mostly white with blue fish or vice versa, probably a very small amount of yellow

Aww :(
Well I mean, breeder gets priority obviously for the spawn :)

I actually think I'm more interested in the mom to be honest!
The colors are actually more appealing to me, even thought that dad is stunning himself xD

I'm so sorry about Dad. I still have my pair, although I spontaneously lost my white HM female, Flake, which I had hoped to breed next. Weird.

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.

I'm probably the only one with her fingers crossed for some spots. I think Mom is goooorgeous! (Dad was pretty stunning too (SIP)) But I love Koi and the way they look, and how they sometimes marble out. -glares at Mushu-

I'm hoping you get at least one with Dad's colors though.

Yes, yes they are. Whatever they end up being, I'll be happy though ^_^
