day number 2 of this spawn

Jorah is tending his nest well, moving the eggs from one part of the nest to the other. Not one has touched the floor of the tank since they spawned yesterday. He's doing such a good job, I'm proud of this first time daddy :)

Dany is back in her home in the 55, she's swimming around and eating well. Proud of her too! Both of them are first timers!

I also just noticed that Jorah has scales starting to grow over one of his eyes...hmmm does this mean he's a dragon scale?

Not necessarily. Dragonscale is a phenotype, which is shown by the thick, opaque scales with bright colors, usually white. However, it does mean that he has Diamond-Eye, which means he'll probably start to go blind as the scaling continues to grow over his eye.

Okay, thank you so much :) I don't mind, if he goes blind that just means he'll need more special treatment than he already gets! :)

So I've counted probably 50-60 eggs...can't tell with the thickness of the nest. Pictures to come tonight

Got kinda ripped up, didn't he? Well, there have been worse. Hopefully his kids won't have any diamond eye issues. But also hope they'll inherit his luxurious finnage!
