Grizzled blue/white HM X Platinum white HM

My next project is going to start on Saturday. I'm going to match Laufey (sire) with Lily (dame) in a colour experiment. Laufey is a sort of grizzled butterfly that started off white and then went blue-ish looking guy, nice fins after they filled in, and a koi coloured face. After he caught a glimpse of the sorority next door (before I put a blocker in) his face changed dramatically. It's gotten even more 'koi' coloured and there's a white 'priests collar' around his -neck- (do fish have necks?)

Lily is a platinum white HM girl. She's quite dainty and cute but can hold her own.

This is purely a colour experimentation.

Sire (before dramatic changes in the face)



Dame


We'll be trying a different type of breeding container. Large 24"L x 18"W x 8"D. When/if fry result they will be combined in with the black DRCT fry in the grow out tank.

I've placed the sire in the spawning tub, girl to be introduced this afternoon with another wad of plants.

I am going to ask my FIL to take some good pics when he gets back in April. He has the fancy camera with lots of attachments.

I think this one is going to be a longer one than B and Dag for sure. They're doing tag but he hasn't built a nest at all.

Anna wants in on the tag (there was a reason I floated the container inside the aquarium)

He's been pretty rough on her, her dorsal is down to the nub and her anal hasn't fared much better. That said, apparently she needs to be kinked at more. He's trying to love dance her over to his nest and she's clearly trying to play rough tag some more.



Hopefully I'll have some eggs before tomorrow.
