Gold /Blue Plat Cross

Post  Doxiemom on Wed Jan 02, 2013 12:46 pm

Looks like I scored again!! I moved my gold female into another tank to give her a "break" from spawning. Well, turns out she decided to spawn with one of my Pearlscale Blue Platinums! I have about 200 eggs in the hatchery right now! I have to credit the New Years Eve spirit as they spawned at the last possible moment of 2012! Wish me luck in a good, healthy batch of fry from this pair.

We've got free swimmers eating BBS!! Odd, though...this batch wiggled at 48 hours (82*) but didn't FS until day 7!! Usually, my batches FS at around 4 days. Everyone is doing great. Oh, and another batch of my Blue Plat wigglers in the hatchery! NO GLO'S! Sad

Dox.. I'm not sure if you caught it.. but the Pearls are part of the legacy of when Vix lived in Richmond, brought some Plat Pearls and these are a few generations removed from what she started a few years back... So.. some of the off-spring will be traveling to Florida!

Every time I come to this forum now all I read is good news >.>. Well, I'm here today to share some too. My first batch of DD fries are close to dime size Very Happy. In a week or two they should be ready for trade or swap. Sad news is I don't have that many Sad. I have about like 21 I believe. So Bill and Doxie you guys are definitely first on my list since you guys have helped me a lot. More good news is that I have more wrigglers on the way Very Happy. So, if you want some DD hit me up Smile.
