Thanks :) He is an orange butterfly HMPK. He is a little smaller, but he should grow more and even if he doesn't thats fine too. I would like to breed some CT in there and get giant crowns eventually, and have some large females. And if he is huge, I will breed him to my giant female, Theresa, then use one of their smaller offspring to breed to the CT. :)

you sound like you have a plan. I would maybe check with OFL or MrV jsut to be sure it doesn't pass to the young.

Okay, I will research it. I don't actually have a female for the little one with Lympho, and it would be a shame to take him and dilute his genes. He is a silver dragon MG PK.

The butterfly I mentioned above in the new giant. :)

Well, I found my camera finally. And my lympho guy, Huggy, is doing fine. However, I lost the new giant last night. When he came, the box had been bashed up badly, and the mail lady was waiving him at me from the driveway. He never ate for me, and would swim up to breathe and fall back down to the bottom to lay on his side. The first day he would spin around as he was trying to swim, but I thought maybe he was just mixed up. He never did anything else, but look around with his eyes a lot, like he couldnt see. His face was a little swollen too... But he never picked up, and after 2 days (he got here on the 8th) he passed away. I tried everything, meds, food, aquarium salt, even mosquito larva. I guess me just got screwed up in shipping. He was double bagged, but the one had leaked a lot of water out into the other, so he didn't have much water or air. She also did not write fragile, live animal, or anything on it, and while it was lined with Styrofoam, I KNOW it got cold in the cargo hold of the plane that brought him. I am very disappointed.

e-mail the breeder or transshipper. I think you can get a refund on him. Did you take pictures of him while this was going on?
