Watching my CTs and DTs grow is pretty exciting! I have to admit, watching the full halfmoon finnage come in is far more dramatic than the slow maturation of the shortfin PKs. The PKs gain attitude, strength in the body, cookie-cutter form with razor-like edges, while the longfin halfmoons seem to have endless fins that start to swirl and billow around when they flare. I still prefer the CTs and PKs more...but I can really see the appeal of the full halfmoons!
Only one nice CTDT out of this fast-maturing last spawn. Sired by the Justin CTDT, I am pleased with how even the lobes are, as well as the mirroring of the anal and dorsal fins. Unfortunately, this guy was extremely determined to get out of the tank and somehow jumped through 2 layers of plastic wrap and ended up dried up on the floor :(
This one's finnage is really coming along nicely. The opposite problem of his brother - his body is short and there is an obvious caudal peduncle bump. However, his split is complete, and the lobes are so full that they are overlapping. He has beautiful symmetry through all his unpaired fins. Just can't have everything on the same fish lol
