well last year I had fry to Dalamar and Sunset....unfortunately I lost them :(

This year I have fry to Sunset with Blu

This is the oldest one who now has his own 10 gal tank

Its just a plastic rubermaid tub, but I got the filter and seeded it in the main tank

When setting it up I used half water from the main tank and half fresh water. I tested twice a day for 2 weeks but using the pre-seeded filter and water I hd no probs...it was cycled in time to put my new baby in :)

yup he seemed just an opaque color, no real color, then he got some metalic shimmers...its hard to describe.

he/she is a sand color...faint hints of grey too

very pale but the metallic scales do shine in the light :)

mum is orange butterfly oranda (Sunset)

dad is blue oranda

from what I have read this combination in the genitics produces chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KOKO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I may have a choco for you :)

I sure hope so but time will tell

Got another 3 fry same parentage but they tiny so Imnpot holding my breath if you know what I mean

You can really tell by comparing Blue to those same rocks how much he has grown. Sunset unfortunately has not grown at all :(

Thanks glitterfish I am very proud of my main tank I have used many a backgrounds in the past but settled for this...it is simply blue celophane wrapper!!! That you wrap presents in....I got it for $2.00 a roll and it did this tank plus another 3 smaller tanks...I just sticky taped it to the back of the glass :) it is transparent so the light gets in from the window for my plants as you can see the blinds to the window behind the tank, but it gives a nice blue tinge.

My friends think Im nuts, every time they visit.......they gotta have a tour of all the tanks LOL

some even now know when they visit....I hand them buckets of water....help do waterchanges in exchange for a home cooked meal and a glass of wine :rofl

as for the plants half are plastic the others are real. this tank grows plants so fast I have to twice a month cut them back, then this gives me new plants for the other tanks...or I put them in a plant tank that has no fish in it to keep for later :)

Thanks oldhag :) The tiny ones are the ones I worry about! I hope they get a big as the other one.

I so want to see how they turn out..color, shape.

Its all so exciting!!

I hope mine get nice and big and strong like yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those pice are wonderful (both fry and your older guys) and hasn't Blue grown loads? Sunset is looking so wonderful and as long as she's healthy - being a little squirt isn't all that bad :D

I was going to ask you how you got that lovely aquamarine colour through your tank and was wondering if it was the tint of the glass - but cellophane? What an amazing idea!! :D I think I may need to pinch it because i've always wanted that lovely aqua colour in my tanks -- makes me think of the tropics :D

I'm still amazed at how much your little redcap looks like my winnie - a very close resemblance indeed :heart
