Wow Your Bowie looks like my Rama only my Rama's tail was damaged when he was shipped to the breeder i bought him from and also he needs a touch more love and attention just to get him back into his previous splendor.

Love your fish

Well Bowie doesn't look quite like that any more. He got a wicked case of fin rot after his last spawn and I had a helluva time getting it under control. Then Tallahasse got through a makeshift divider and they tore each other up again (although Bowie was far better off). His fins are growing back quite nicely and evenly though. I have some updated pics I need to upload.

As for katie.. take the colors that are on the fish in Martinismommy's avatar and you've got what she looks like now. She's amazing.

I've always liked Bowie...I was actually going to ask you if you were ever going to spawn him again LOL.

I would spawn Bowie and Katie...They're a GREAT pair. Both have nice form and finnage and great color. Go for it! :)

I'm really leaning towards him at the moment for two reasons. One I don't think a week is enough time for Dan to recuperate and spawn again and two because I still think Russell is a little too immature. Bowie is raring to go and Katie is still in condition from the last attempt.

I'm not a breeder so my opinion may not be worth much lol but I'd try Bowe again. Like you said, he's a proven breeder and a good father and he produced some awesome babies with Lilly. I'm sure he'll produce some beauties with Katie.

I'd go with Bowie and Katie, even though I'm not a breeder. They look like a great pair.

I guess I'm a little biased where Bowie is concerned because he's the daddy of my babies. lol

I've been meaning to update this but I keep forgetting.

None of the Dan babies survived unfortunately but I'm reconditioning the pair. I think it was velvet that got the kids because a couple days after removing him I noticed velvet on Dan. I'm not going to spawn him until he's cured.

The other spawn is doing well. I did the first actual water change last night and counted at least 20 babies in there. I meant to set up my BBS hatchery last night but forgot so I'll begin feeding BBS tomorrow.

I'm going to be setting up another spawn tomorrow between Bowie and Katie but I'll start another thread for that one and just leave this thread for the Tallahassee spawn.
