Moved these guys from their little 10 gallon to a more spacious 16 gallon planted grow out today. They are from the spawn 050313, a CTDT x CTdt cross. Unfortunately only a few CTDTs (expected 50%, but Mendelian laws are only probabilities lol) and the best looking CTDT managed to jump to his death despite 2 layers of saran wrap on the tank. I'm still confused as to how he did that...
Lazy day with the fishies. Woke up to the Betta burdigala spawning again, so that was great start to my day :) Hoping for lots of those guys! They are listed as a vulnerable species, so I hope that I can spread them around to other hobbyists as much as I can. They are too beautiful to lose!
They now share a tank with several amano shrimps, a monogamous pair of Sterbai, and my little pygmy corey of unknown age, Bundy. I used to have a pair of them called Ted and Bundy, but poor Ted perished a couple months back. Ted and Bundy were a gift made in courtship from my boyfriend very early in our relationship (about 2. 5 years ago). Gentlemen, if you want to win your way into a fish lady's heart, come strolling in with the fish she's always wanted but never been able to get a hold of! These little guys came with me all the way from eastern Washington to San Francisco (and something like 6 different tank moves!) Little Bundy is getting a little stiff in his old age, but I still love him :)
I also managed to jar a few more of the latest PK spawn 040613. Very excited for these guys! So far, only 3 have shown themselves as males, and I have a few more that think they are females. Hoping for a fairly balanced spawn so I can give out pairs lol.
