Ok so I've been waiting for days to post a spawn log, I was a little worried I was going to suffer the curse of the early spawn log so I waited until my babies hatched, which I am very happy to tell you, they did this morning.
This is actually my second spawn that I have got the babies to hatching stage and I'm really hoping I don't mess up like I did last time! The babies all died last time because I opened the lid and a cold draft blew in which they (at 1 day old) reacted very badly to! But this time I know a lot more than I did the first time so I'm hoping it all goes to plan!
Daddy (Boris) Is a crowntail, red and a sort of lavander (ish) purple, in a rough butterfly pattern. I was told at the place I had bought him that he is from good stock, however the lady that bought him originally said he had clumped the eggs together when she bred him and not many hatched so she didn't want to waste her time when she has so many other decent males. I am also told he has black orchid genes in him somewhere along the line (not sure if this is true but it sounded pretty believeable)
Mummy (Holly) Is a doubletail, she is green with slight tints of pinky red, hence the name lol. I don't know much about her, only that she is from a long line of well bred doubletails, and has not bred before, but she seemed to have no problem with Boris.
My estimate is that I have about 30 babies, there are a few more eggs but I'm unsure if they will hatch over the rest of today, but I am hoping some do!
Pictures to come!
