Copper Fire Blue firem Spawn log

(sorry for the mistake in the title lol)

Since the eggs have hatched I think I should do a real spawn log :) It wasn't intentional, but luckily the pair are both HM's dragons and I'm very excited about it.

Here's the parents if you didn't see my accidental spawn thread

Unnamed mother




Asgard the father, who is doing a fantastic job. He is a rosetail, but hopefully since it's not too extreme most of the fry will be ok.





It's very hard to get any photos(and to even see) the eggs/fry since it's in the very back, here's a photo to show you what I'm trying to see through lol


and here's the divided tank before everything happened


And a pic of the eggs

It's so sad watching as the fry fall, some try to wiggle back up(some even make it) but many of them don't. Asgard does a good job of catching most of them, and also staring intensely at a leaf where one landed making sure it's a fry before picking it up lol. I feel bad for the one's who aren't rescued though, on occasion he does go explore the bottom and pick up from stragglers but I know not everyone can be saved, especially since there are rocks and roots for them to get lost in.

I love staring at them XD I gently lifted one of the leafs to get them back in the water(I was told swimming back to the nest is vital exercise) and it was so cute watching them all swim back up.

a lot of the fry are free swimming, although it seems more like they all vanished since they're now all around the lotus and not where I can see them. I see a few still handing, and tomorrow I'm going to take the lotus out. I also removed Asgard, poor guy deserves a break finally
