OMG Finally!! Turquoise HM X Steel DT

Ok I am so excited!! I have been trying to get this male to spawn for over a month now. He wouldn't even blow bubble nests in his own tank. After multiple females and multiple experiments with spawning areas I FINALLY got a spawn!
This male is a year old already so I think that's why it's been so hard to get him to spawn. His sister is blue girl my blue multicolor female that took 3rd place at a past IBC show. The female is a cheeky plump steel DT. Her tail is very well balanced and from what I have read the combination of turquoise and steel makes 100% royal blue fry.
This male has excellent fins and I cant wait to see the results of this spawn.
The males color can change A LOT so I posted pictures to show the wide array of colors he can show.








Here is the female that he spawned with. She is VERY egg heavy so I think it should be a big spawn.


Here is the spawning tank. It's very large and heavily planted because the male was too aggressive to spawn in anything else. Luckily the female was fearless and really flirty so she was just what he needed and the genetics are perfect so I am happy too .

Just wondering is your male a rose tail? I'd watch out for deformities in the spawn.

But I really like your female. Spawn set up is good...always seems to work better in a plastic tub xD

Thanks for the information and for the compliments about my female I appreciate it .
Also, I did some research after I read what you wrote, and from what I have seen, I should actually get some very unique and beautiful fish. The problems with deformities are the same as with the double tail's in Feather Tails. You don't want to breed DT X DT or FT X FT. However if you do a search on FT X DT, you will see other forums that list spawn logs with this exact same match up and the spawn look incredible. To be honest I am even more excited than I was before! So thank you for telling me about that!
It's a good thing I didn't breed him to his sister like the breeder wanted me to though. That probably would have created a deformed spawn.
So now I know not to do that
