Talking The 007 Spawn! Loads 'o' pics!

Sooo I've decided to start up a spawn log for GoldenEye and Marbles. The fry hatched this morning, and holy crapola, theres SO many fry, its almost stupid LMAO.

Ok, starting with the parents:
Marbles the marble...haha:


GoldenEye (his eye IS gold, just not in the photo lol):


Prequel to this mornings madness, 3 unborn baby bettas that just happened to be at the front, how convenient! He moved them a few minutes later, little bugger..


And the newborns :) Enjoy!

Definitely an interesting couple! Lol. For the photos though, I use a Canon T3i with this macro lens extenders. Basically like a macro lens, but soooooo much cheaper! haha. The macro lens I wanted was around $800...So $60 for some macro extenders seemed like a good idea for now :P

I've come to the conclusion that the speckles are what 'base colour' they'll be, either dark or light..For example, in a different spawn from about a month ago, Sheldon was the dad (in my avatar), and he's a pastel and fairly light coloured, Marbles was also the mom in that spawn, but this is what his fry looked like at the same age. ALL his were white

whereas Goldeneye is black and dark red and his fry are dark speckled.
This is my theory only though...Would be kinda interesting to do some sort of study on it. I wonder if the black spots are the scales that are gunna be black..hmm...So many possibilities! Lol

definitely sounds like a good idea, especially considering how well it seems to be working, lol. if I ever actually decide I'm willing to shell out the money for a dslr I'll be keeping that in mind

Wish I could afford a camera that takes such great pics, oh well, maybe sometime in the far future.

There's some D-slr's that are decently cheap now :) Nikon D40's are awesome, that was my first SLR and taught me sooo much about them. It was about $500 when I bought it so it's probably way cheaper now. I kinda went 'all out' on this Canon in April..The body with a basic 18-55mm lens was $1200. I bought a 75-300mm lens later for another $400ish. Really worth having, but it can be a massive pain in the butt to carry around. Sometimes I wish i just had one of those small digital cameras still.

YOUR CAMERA. I NEED IT.



...I mean congrats! :D Love moms coloring. That kind of grizzled pink with the red coppers should be interesting.
