Been there done that. I Kept shrimp and bred them for 2 years and I am over it. keeping shrimp was awesome at first but then it got old. I still like shrimp but no longer have shrimp only tanks.

I think keeping a Reef tanks would be a real investment and a reason I never have tried Saltwater in the 15ish years of keeping fish.

Anyways I will be breeding her to a HMPK Male at the end of this month so only time will tell for sure if she is a HMPK or not.

I would say HMPK by the dorsal. She may have had a HM cross someplace back but I think you are safe. Whatever you find for her make sure he has a really nice anal. She has the nice fan dorsal that snaps open. I couldn't count her rays but if she has more than 4 she "technically" would be show plakat (HMPK) and not PK. HMPK has pretty strict rules so you should read up on that when deciding on her future mate.

The male I want to breed to here is this sexy guy.
he is a HMPK



Here is the shot of her Tail. This was after trying to spawn her do she looks a little beat up.


I think he is a HMPK but yes HM was mixed in not too many generation ago.

I am going for color and fish with nice form and fins. I plan on breeding the offspring back to each other and that should give me some big ears in th f2 batch. Then I will breed the best big ears to eachother. I think these 2 fish should give me some nice fry. I also want to see how the big ear gene works. I also can't find a nice marble big ear. So that's kind of my goal. I want a fish that looks like the male but big ears.

I have a big ear salamander pair but the male is not that great. Not show quality. He is kind of small too I tried to breed him to this blue female it was their first time. She did great he never got the wrap right.

I love seeing non-salamander big ears.xD
The pair looks great and I hope you have a large, healthy spawn.
