I'm hoping to get some DT's in this spawn.

I miss how she looked when she first came here, but she still looks beautiful.

I don't know if this picture will work very well, but here she is when she first came-


And if the picture doesn't work here is the link:

@DarkMoon: Would you happen to know where they get this DT gene from? Fasht showed us a couple pictures of DT fry.

The red should come back soon. It usually takes a week or two for the pigment to return once the tissue has regrown. The fin edge may look different but she should end up with the same colors at least.

And there are always more fry than you count... The eggs are often blown into the middle where they can't be seen.

I hope it does, though I do see a lot of the red coming back little by little. I think she will end up with the same colors too. It would be interesting to see if she was to get a different color.

Yeah, I do see a little amount of eggs in the middle and then I can see a VERY light yellow color in the middle of the nest and I'm guessing that's where they are. I am hoping to see some wrigglers by this time tomorrow and will be looking at them the whole time tomorrow when I get home from school.

Quick update:

There isn't much to update besides the fact that Draco is keeping an eye on the nest and is ALWAYS rearranging the eggs and blowing more bubbles. I will have to get a video of him taking care of the eggs for the Documentary and then I will have to take pictures to show you guys:)

I love breeding! It is so relaxing yet stressful at the same times haha.

The I would give an estimate of about 15 eggs and this is from only one point of view though and he built his nest in the back of the tank so it is SO hard to count them. Also the 15 or so that I counted were just on the bottom of the nest.

Pictures Coming soon:) (tomorrow)...

Not to triple post but they hatched!! Now the fun begins! Draco is picking up the fry that are only a few hours old and spitting them into the nest. They are so cute and are trying to get to the nest on their own but cant which is too cute. Ill have to post the video and pictures tomorrow but i just thought I'd share with you all. Also from what i see the strongest fry have hatched and there are about 5 and morr hatching as i write this so they are "born" 1/31/12 because its 12:40am here.

Lastly Korra IS finally getting the color back more and more but i see that it isnt red like before it is black coming in to fill in the missing red. Tomorrow i will show everything.

Congratulations on the spawn! I soooo understand the relaxing and stressful part of spawning LOL. It is worth it when it all works out.
