Heres a pic of the parents
Although this blue girl has a nice bottom half of the caudal, the top outer ray leaves much to be desired, but she has 4 ray branching and relatively straight edges. Plus she has an interesting gold splash on her tail which I quite like
Both fish have the same father but different mothers.
This is more of a colour spawn since I want to darken up the fathers black a bit more while also increasing the spread of irid of the body.
The females has had copper siblings and her mother was black so hopefully Ill get some copper blacks back.
I was going to use a copper sibling to get 100% coppers but her tail is more rounded and this males tail is also quite round so I didn't want to add to that too much considering I have a parallel line of good fins but bad colour that I want to cross to eventually so I dont want to mess up the fins too much.
I introduced the pair on tuesday and released the female yesterday.
So far they have been practicing the wrap, failing and then the male gets frustrated and chases her away
