They'll have some new ones right around the first when I have money to get everything.
Update on the spawn: NEVER forget the importance of a working heater.
I have an adjustable heater in my spawn tank set for 80/81, it plugged into an extention that goes through the wall and plug into a socket in the kitchen. I guess While I was gone this weekend someone unplugged it thinking it was for the toaster or something(despite it being big and green and going through the wall....). So the temp dropped and I lost a few from the sudden change. :/ I had a backup preset heater in there(keep the water above 76, generally around 78 pluged) so the water didn't get cold-cold. But I guess the potential 5 degree drop(I wasn't here so I don't know) was too much for some of the small ones to handle.
I didn't get an exact count when I removed them but it wasn't pretty...
It looks like all my larger fry made it through though.
Tomorrow they will be one month(30days) old. A couple still look like they're only a week or so,but not many. I will separate them soon...maybe.
Another sad note,though not spawn related. My last female left from my first spawn FOREVER ago has pop eye. She's probably close to 4 years old now and though I'll treat she doesn't look to hot and I don't know if she'll make it.
On the note of the next possible spawn I think I'm leaning towards a dragon pair(gold,or white) or a Dragon male and marble HM or PK female. I know I'd only get partial dragon if anything from this but as long as I got one female from the spawn I could breed back to a dragon male(father or unrelated) to get thicker scales in F2...I think a line of multi/marble dragons could be fun to work with?
