A couple weeks ago i bred the male in my avatar(back when he was all white ><) to a blue vt girl.
The father was a fry eater for the most part but these 10 managed to make it to free swimming and are now going along just fine.
They've never had live food. Thus far they've lived on crushed pellets and flakes.
I don't normally raise them on just this as i usually have decap bse around,but i wanted to see how it'd work.
They're growth is a little behind, for lack of raw protein probably, but they are otherwise healthy little buggers.
They get 50% water changes every day(siphoned from the bottom with any gunk or leftover food). Once i get some money i'm going to go get some frozen baby brine shrimp from petsmart and try feeding that for hopefullya bit of a growth boost.
(I've never hatched my own brine shrimp and before i spend 36+shipping i want to try hatching them. so if anyone has some brine shrimp eggs, and they'd be willing to maybe send me a tea spoon or two,i'd love so send you a $1 to cover the cost. ><)
I can't take any pictures untill they're big enough to catch on my cell phone or this place would be flooded xD
What i'm expecting from this spawn:
-vailtails with PK geno
-partial dragon/dragon geno
-marbles and multi's of mostly the light body sort
I'm going to take the best female and spawn her to her father and then maybe so a brother/sister spawn if i get a decent male.
both of these crosses should give me PK fry in f2 generation.
From there i want to introduce a white OHM or OHMpk if i can fine one fore sale at that time, to add better finage and more white genes..
This is a line i plan to work on for a while. I want to get some semi-true breeding white dragons.
