Black Copper CT x Black Copper HM

Hey y'all! Never thought I'd actually be posting in this section but here I am!

This spawn is happening in conjunction with Lucillia on here, the father is her boy a Black Copper CT named Osiris. Originally I had a Black Copper CT girl as well who was supposed to be his mate but she had a premature death and then along came Isis a Black Copper Dragon CTPK, but alas she didn't want to spawn regardless of the methods I tried. So this spawn is instead not exactly what we'd hoped but we tried my little girl Silhouette, a Black Copper HM butterfly girl.

Goals: improved tail spread and healthy Black Copper babies.

Over time we'll have to fix the web reduction that we've basically ruined for the babies with these tail types but we'll see how it goes!

Pair spawned 8/13 sometime around 8-9pm. Eggs hatched 8/15 morning. Osiris was taken out today (8/17) and fry are horizontally swimming all over.

Yeah, can't tell if fry have eaten any of the Banana Worms at all but I put them in. I also can't tell if there are any fry that are dead. Some are on the bottom of the tank but they move around occasionally, some stay there while others skitter around and eventually make their way to the top. I assume dead fry will look completely white and possibly grow fungus on them if I don't find them in time?

Ooh forgot to say, I counted somewhere between 80-90 fry

Fry are still all alive this morning that I could see. They're in my Aqueon 13 gallon so it's rather long and the oak leaves are still in there so I'm sure plenty of them were hiding around. But when I looked over this morning I saw a bunch shooting and whizzing around the tank! Super exciting

Eventually yes, we will sell the babies when they are old enough. Forum here gets first dibs but it won't be until another 3 good months at least, if not 4 ^_^

Thanks!
