Black is transitioning back to black, I suppose. But he had been stuck in this half black phase recently. Which prompted the gf to ask if Panda really never had any fry (no, she never did) because that was exactly what she was like when she was younger.

It is sort of funny that this spawn though. They really do resemble her a lot, even though they shared no genetics with her, and even more so because she was the original female I had intended to breed and started spawn log for (hence the technically wrong title).

This spawn gave me some hints as to what to expect from crossing long finned and short finned fish. I had suspected their mother was a cello HMxHMPK geno, which should have yield long fins in theory, but in practice, it seems like the spawn threw a mix. Blackie has pretty conventional plakat proportions (fins maybe a little longer than average), but some of his siblings are crossing longer fins and also have longer bodies.



















Poor Pumpkin and the other fry in the single tanks were left out of the photo shoot again. According to my gf, they are "not as interesting." I personally love Pumpkin's color.

Future plans for these babies while I lay awake thinking about things...

As you can probably guess from all my focus on Blackie, he is likely my pick for continuing with this line (unless a sib pulls an ugly duckling). I would've liked his more long finned brother, but his ray count looks to be pretty hideous and he doesn't really have the form. I am going classic veiltail first with a black/ marble base. Which had been my plan all along and would have been a heck of a lot easier and straightforward if Azazel x Panda had worked out. I feel like these unrelated fry turning out to be so similar to Panda in coloration/pattern is like a second chance in a sense. I will need to find a suitable VT female, nothing that looks like a cross since there would be no telling what I would end up with then.

I supposed I could try Artemisia seeing as she is of roughly (from what I can tell) the same age and size. I also think her form is not too bad.



But I am not sure about her, so not set in stone yet. I want to pick the "perfect" female and not just use Artemisia because she is a fish I have. I am in no rush to kick off another spawn right away anyway. Also, I am not sure what would happen mixing the colors.

Whatever you pick, I'm all in! Did I mention how jealous I am of this spawn? Seriously, I want to start another spawn again, and every time I read this it's like you're just about to set me off to get a breeding pair!

You got some beautiful results! I especially love the little black guy with the red in his dorsal and the little pk is cute too! Looking forward to seeing how the next generation turns out

Well, I saw your one baby all grown up, so I would wholeheartedly support the decision. xD

But I mean, we all gotta juggle RL and out fish (it's funny because my fish are kinda my life ). So realistically, don't add too much to your plate if it's already full.

Thank you. I do have a question though... Based on your experience, will he (the little red dorsal male) grow into a more, I guess, "symmetrical" caudal?
