Don't worry about Dan's sons. My purple HM male who I swore was female now has 2 month old juvies who are flaring and I'm already sexing them...in fact they've grown insanely fast.

I'm not too worried... I was just curious if that sort of thing was genetic. I'm actually wondering if I bred a female from the spawn back to Dan if I would get short fins. I love Dan's look.. like a miniature halfmoon. All the HMPK I've seen have that "PK" look.. I just love how Dan has HM fins.. just a little bit shorter

It would be cool to get a fry with Dan's coloring except a more defined pattern on his/her fins (kind of like the dark edge he had when I bought him). He still has the pattern but it sort of fades together.

I'm just excited period... I don't care what colors come out really.. that was the best part of my last spawn.. everyone was so different!

You got a pretty good mix with that last spawn. Pretty yellows, a couple of MG's and some blues.

They're here!!!!! I picked them up around 4pm after a big fiasco at the post office... they were sent out instead of held for pick up for some reason. But everything worked out fine in the end.

The girls are amazing. They're starting to color up now and WOW. One of the girls is actually starting to turn more multi than MG and she is absolutely amazing. The other is a soft seafoam green MG color right now.

I also got a surprise.. a LOVELY young MG butterfly male. He's so handsome :) I may spawn him as well (seeing as I have two girlys). Karen has an amazing knack of picking out the perfect fish for me, he's just gorgeous IMO.

They're acclimating right now. I had to go to class right after picking them up so I floated them for 2 hours and now I'm slowly adding water to their tanks. Temporarily they're in 1/2 gallon critter keepers so I can get some pictures before they go in their jars (which are impossible to get pics with).


This spawn (or spawns ;)) are going to be outstanding. Last night I couldn't sleep because I was envisioning the kinds of babies I could get from these kids. I couldn't be more excited

They're amazing (as expected LOL).. I should be setting up the spawn tub tomorrow and introducing them either Saturday night or Sunday night.
