Black Orchid DDR CT Spawn

Decided not to be lazy and actually start a log on this spawn

Here are some old pics of mommy (Aria) and daddy (Ezria)... They are siblings and I'm hoping to get some double double rays (DDR) like the father or at least start moving towards that.

Thanks guys!

Eggs hatched today!! I took a few pictures to upload but I'm really bad at taking pics so they all came out dark and blurry I'll try to get better ones tomorrow. It looks like a small spawn ~100, but they are so darn tiny that who knows... I could be completely off.

I lucked out on him actually! He wasn't DDR when I bought him, but just a few weeks later he started growing the second set of rays. I'm really hoping to have some frys like him because I don't think there's a lot of CTs like him out there ^^;

Well the nest is more or less gone, and I see a lot less wiggling tails than I did before. Not sure what happened but I guess daddy ate them since they aren't dead under the nest =(

Well, it's his first time caring for frys and I still see maybe 5-10 up in the nest. One of them is even quite the explorer! Hoping to see some free swimming tomorrow.

How many times did you let the pair spawn, is mommy still in the tank?

Hmmm I saw maybe 3 good embraces, then I went to do something else for about half an hour and lost count. I took the mom out when I saw that she started hiding again, although it half looked like she was still interested. I might have taken her out too early
