Green Mustard Dragonscale HM - White/orange Marble Spade Tail

Placed both in tub yesterday evening, HM seems to lethargic, even after conditioning. Although I was worried Draconis would be hampered by finnage, he has built a LARGE bubble nest through the night.

Actively spawning with Snow white, but he seems to have difficulty with wrapping the female, and when eggs drop, he ignores them. Female has seemed to spit them up to the nest a few times.

I can only hope to get a few from this spawning, they are necessary for the DTCT line.

Ok...So Im absolutely frustrated with Draconis. He let all of the half hatched babies fall to the bottom. And I found them this morning. I placed them in a float cup to hopefully save a few...but I am pretty sure the majority are dea

After getting the CTDT, I aim to try nailing down the dragonscale by breeding some imbellis... But if Draconis doesnt work out next spawning...I will have to fine another Dragonscale HM/rosetail to get the dragonscale genotype.

*Shrieks*

All those wasted cuties!

A few of the fry are jumping. I will be feeding some microworms tonight since I saw one actually swimming. Hopefully the ones that survived this first time daddy wont be culls and I can continue on without reconditioning and respawning.

When creating something, even if it's only to improve finnage, it's best to make 2 batches of the same pair (I breed about 1 week interval). That way you'd have more to choose from and the sizes/ages aren't too far apart. I usually inbreed batch 1 to batch 2. I seldom inbreed the same batch (no special reason - just me) - unless I have no choice.

If your HM male is rather lethargic/inactive, try breeding him in a smaller container. Eg. instead of using 10g tanks, you could use 1g wide containers. That way the male/female won't have to use up as much energy to spawn and rear fry. Once fry are free swimming, you could acclimate them to a grow out.

Good Luck on your goals

You spawn the same pair only a week apart? I usually recondition the female for at least a month. Do you feed them while they spawn? And what is the turnover rate for fry?

So, there are about fifty fry, removed Draconis, fed Microworms, will be feeding BBS tonight. All free swimming.

My son got into the fish room and dumped a quarter of the water... So hopefully I didnt lose to many.
