This is my first spawn. Both parents came from a petstore.
The male was called Sheldon. He was a crowntail with a black/blue body with red finnage. Unfortunately he past away.
The picture is from when we just got him, sometime in January.
The female is called Amy. She is a traditional plakat with a blue/turquoise (metallic) body and her finnage has some red in it. At the moment, she is 5,6cm.
16 May, Amy and Sheldon in the tank.
17 May, Amy released.
18 May, Amy was removed out of the tank
20 May, they hatched. We had to remove Sheldon out of the tank, he was exhausted and very ill.
21 May, we found nitrite in the tank, we tried refreshing the water, but it didn't work... We bought a new tank and caught all the fry, there where over 450 fry. Later that evening, we sadly had to euthanize Sheldon as he was suffering too much.
22 May, free swimming
Later, when I have time, I'll post every news that happend in all that time (and all the pictures ofcours).
