So it is official. I will be doing my first spawn next month. I am getting my final supplies in order in the meantime.
Tanks - two 10 gallon, two 2 gallon
I am going to be getting a tub for grow out as well. Complete with filter and heater.
Foods for conditioning (I have NLS pellets, mosquito larva, and frozen blood worms).
I am getting sponge filter(s) and fry foods. I am open to suggestions on which ones to get and good places to get them from. I would be looking to order the fry foods on the 1st or after.
I plan on having java moss in my spawning tank.
If you can think of anything I am forgetting, feel free to mention it! I wont take offense. I know it is likely that I'm forgetting something.
Spawn 1 - HM dragons
For this spawn, I plan on using my HM female Eva (bred by DarkMoon). She is a black marble dragon HM that carries the PK gene. I will be breeding her to one of her brothers. I am open to suggestions on which one. All three have sharp edges and a nice 180 spread with good balance. Egil is a red dragon and a tail biter. Leonidas is a superb bubble nest maker and a black dragon with red wash. Odin is a black dragon with complete dragon scaling. His dragon scaling partially covers his eyes.
Spawn 2 - Giant HMPK x HMPK
For this spawn, I plan on trying my Uther and an unnamed female. Uther is a giant HMPK. He is black with yellow on his face/head. The female is bright orange with a her head and fins being a darker and yet brighter orange. She has excellent form with nice sharp edges to her tail and perfect 180 spread.
I have a couple of other pairs I'm working on as well, but haven't finalized them yet. They are HMPKs. Again, I'm open to any input or opinions. That's why I'm here. I'll be sharing pictures of the pairs soon. Going to try to take better pictures of them now that they've settled into their new homes.
