The juvie is doing fantastic, growing like a weed and flaring at the nearby siblings. :P

Well, I've been focusing on getting my steel blue female HMPK -




to cross with this male-



He's got some red wash, so I'm using steel to try and get rid of it. However, in the time I've owned her, I've NEVER been able to breed her. She's got some kind of disorder, I think- whenever I put her into a spawning tank and release her, the moment she gets touched by the male, she darts to the nearest corner and sulks at the bottom, literally for days on end, not responding to any flaring, and when she gets nipped she flies around the tank and goes straight back to sulking. I've tried all kinds of conditioning techniques, and different males, but still no luck. She's very vivid in color, plump full of eggs, and has very vibrant white vertical bars and seems excited to spawn, but the moment he touches her- nothing. It's very frustrating.

The female that Xman sent me, the sister to my mints-




(sorry, crappy picture)

She's still too young to spawn, she's teeny. I've been fattening her up as much as I can, though, and I'll see how she responds to a male in a few days or so.

I'm in dire need to either import or locally buy more steel / turq females for this line, but on Wednesday I got laid off from the government, so no extra spending for me. =/

I wish I could help. Unfortunately, my only dragons are nowhere near blue.
I have dragon HMs in black with red wash, red, and black with complete dragon scaling.
I then have a male dragon HMPk who is yellow with mint green edging to his fins.

I've had this happen. I can speak from experience when I say, it really is annoying and frustrating. Even when you try anything possible. I don't know if it's me, but does that female have a little red wash on her too? Possibly the anal fin? It almost looks like its lightly colored and rusty looking?

Hmmm, it might be your screen or something, I don't see a red wash on her in the picture. In person she's pure steel.
