Black copper HM PK x blue SD PK

Heres a pic of the parents


Although this blue girl has a nice bottom half of the caudal, the top outer ray leaves much to be desired, but she has 4 ray branching and relatively straight edges. Plus she has an interesting gold splash on her tail which I quite like

Both fish have the same father but different mothers.
This is more of a colour spawn since I want to darken up the fathers black a bit more while also increasing the spread of irid of the body.
The females has had copper siblings and her mother was black so hopefully Ill get some copper blacks back.

I was going to use a copper sibling to get 100% coppers but her tail is more rounded and this males tail is also quite round so I didn't want to add to that too much considering I have a parallel line of good fins but bad colour that I want to cross to eventually so I dont want to mess up the fins too much.

I introduced the pair on tuesday and released the female yesterday.
So far they have been practicing the wrap, failing and then the male gets frustrated and chases her away

Very nice! Will watch carefully. I like them both but it's nice to see the girls short anal and the males nice dorsal. Once again, very nice!

Thanks Plakats are the best ones

Yeah I'm quite glad he got the dt dorsal. Their grandad had a real long anal so Im really lucky that he didnt pass that on to his grandchildren, he did give the long pointy dorsal though so this males one is a bit too pointy for my liking. All of his siblings have pointy ones too which sucks...
Hopefully his half sis rounds them off a bit.

The poor guy is being so gentle with her and trying to lure her under the nest but shes not having any of it and is staying in her leaf. I guess she got sick of him changing his mind all the time and called it a day haha

That sounds good. Don't tell my half moons but I really love pla kats. It's to bad that people here want the long fin types more. Pla kats are more active and in some ways have more personality. A gentle spawn is probably so nice.

Thanks :D

Blacky hasnt been getting much action unfortunately, I think hes been friendzoned....
Girl is bursting with eggs, stripped like crazy, flirts when hes near and Blacky is maintaining his bubblenest and dancing but she doesnt want him.
The day after I released them they started wrapping but no eggs because they are virgins and I dont think theyve tried again since.... Argh!
