The pair is beautiful. I agree with MrV...she does have a wide dorsal.

She might have some DT in her genes. Also another reason I think she has DT in her is because of her "spoon" head shape. Its at an angle that usually DT's hold.

The male has a beautiful color and dragon scaling!

Yes she does have doubletail, the doubletail female I have in this thread is her sister.

The babies have hatched! I am not sure how many there are but it looks like maybe 15-20...although usually I underestimate spawns in the beginning. This male proved to be a great father after all.

When choosing females I look for the most ray branching (unless daddy has excessive branching). Mom has 4 while daughter has 3. Fixing ray branching is too much trouble for me.

Did your male spawn with 2 females?

I don't think I fully understand how to count rays to be honest. I have read so much and looked at visual diagrams and I still can't count them right.

I do see that she doesn't branch out as much, but I just contributed that to her age since they branch more as they age. Her mother was over a year old in her photograph and the daughter is only 4 months old. Could you help me see the branching on my females? You have my permission to use my photo's to illustrate the area's that you are looking at to determine branching. I really need help on this so if you could find the time it's much appreciated.

As for the spawn I was able to get the original female to spawn with him.

Good news! The spawn is much larger than I originally thought, I am guessing anywhere from 50-100. I took the father out today I put him into a floating tank in the sorority. I do this with all of my males after taking them from the spawn tank to prevent depression. The constant flirtation of all the females does a really good job keeping them busy with flaring and even trying to start new bubble nests. One time I woke up in the morning to find that one of my females had jumped into the small floating tank holding a recovering male. To my suprise all he did was build a massive bubble nest for her.
