I crossed a white and gray marbled Elephant Ear HMPK with a multicolored Mystery Half Moon Female.
I call her mystery because she is in a jar marked HMF which stands for Half-Moon female. However, she looks like she has elephant ears, or dumbo. So I dont know if she is a full HM female or an HMPK half moon and I don't know if she has elephant ears or not.
So I'm anxious to raise the babies and see what the cross produced.
In addition, the day after I pulled this female, my fish room overheated and I lost over 30 fish including her. This makes me really want to keep these babies healthy.
I believe there are over 100 fry easily and it's possible there are 2 or 3 times that.
They just started swimming horizontal late in the day yestrday afternoon.
I started a bubbler early this morning.
I fed them a little boiled egg yolk late last night and early this morning. Then I crushed up some fish food and fed it within the last hour. I'll have BBS hatching tonight and will feed them the first round late tonight.
Thanks for tuning in.
