iove the spotting on your blue and orage boy, he's be a good match for your dalmation. ^^ Male 2 i would breed to either 4 or 2, stay away from introducing red wash into the line ^^

female 4 also has some red/orange in her so she'd be a good match for male 1 if you want to try to get more like him.

Korwhord spoils me - Indjo, I hadn't noticed the blue marble boys 2 rays...I looked at his fish and found this guy, who has a yellow stomach and coloring similar to the one I picked last time who arrived DOA. He has 4 rays which is better, and has more compatible colors with my females I think. Korwhord let me trade him =]

I doubt it. Form will mostly follow the female. So most of your F1, if not all, will have 2 rays - specially the females. Some of the males may have 4 rays though.

Your male is a drgn and so is that last female. Her only fault is that she has a rather long body for a PK. SO IMO they compliment each other. You will have tons of different colors, including multi's with orange/red fins.

Fixing colors is much easier than fixing form .... and definitely easier to spot. I'd rather pair him to the orange drg and get 8 rayed F1. Then pick out the colors I like best and do F2...... and so on. You would always get at least 4 rays and many 8 rays. Spawn the 8 rayed fry until f3-f4 and you will get it fixed in your line.

Yes he looks better. Just remember that if you pair him to the non drg, you might lose the drg.... I mean pure drg scale.
Oh, another thing - look at the dorsals of your females. IMO your orange drg has the best dorsal out of all your females (stands upright - not leaning to the back).

This is what I mean by spotting form is more difficult - you can't see it immediately.

My recent spawn: Male 8 rays. Female 2 rays = fry all 2 ray females. Few males have 4 rays. None have 8 rays ....... by coincidence, I checked them this morning.

Your blue female has 4 rays so she would produce nice fry with either male..... not your 2nd male, but #1 and the last picture.

I'm talking about spotting rays with the naked eye. I don't have a good camera that can make close ups. And it would be a hassle to take pictures of hundreds just to look at their rays. I only use magnifying glass. And it took me over an hour (bad eye sight).

But when spotting colors - well you immediately see what you like.

Got it. Yeah it's hard to see the rays, especially if the fins are light colored. How old are you indjo?

How are your giants doing?

My body is much older than my age. My mind is not older than a teenager. LOL.

They're confusing. They don't look like they're growing. But then again I stare at them everyday.
