Dt/vt

I decided to use Meghan, a successful gal with getting my DT to spawn, and well... this morning they are spawning, and they were in last night. She knew exactly what to do right away, there was a little chasing on his end, and now they are spawning. It's too bad she's a VT, but at least she's not from wholesalers.

The DT is fairly young though, small-bodied and has done some growing since I've gotten him. I expect reds and blues for the fry (and of coure some "whaaaat?" in there too :p)

I know right?! I don't know much about DT genes, and unsure if I'd get double tailed veils, but it'll be interesting nontheless She's being very patient with him, and they are still spawning.

Theoretically you will get 100% DT geno - meaning fry will all carry DT genes but since it's recessive, they won't physically be DT.

IME you will get some single tails, some single T with wide dorsal, some with uneven DT caudals. Most should look VT.

IMO DTVT is gorgeous - those traditional DT. Very long caudal with distinct split - very wide overall fin spread. Now it's very rare.

Awesome =D if/when his fry are older I may snag a couple females to breed back to a DT, or even him!!! I've never seen a DTVT and here DT are rare anyways.
