There were about 6 fry that had a scale issue out of 143. None were ridiculously bad but flaws for sure. Greatly reduced % from f1 but I suspect there will be scale flaws in the f3 as well at a further reduced number.
On a happy note Humphrey the giant is currently wrapping his gf as I write. They have been in spawn tank for 12 days!! Kudos to the female what a brave trooper she is large girl from my f1 and like her Mom went almost black before breeding. The big boy seems to place his eggs all over and not in a nest just like last time, any advice on what to do when a male does this?
