Midnight X Japanese Shubunkin Spawn 8/15/11

Recommended Posts

All the details here http://...................blogspot.com/2011/08/midnight-shubunkin-male-x-japanese.html.

Today I found a Japanese Shubunkin female caught up on the pond netting that drooped into the pond. She was dripping with bright orange eggs when I picked her up. I floated her in a tub, gathered some hornwort and caught the midnight male from the pond. Squeezed them over the hornwort and got them back into the pond. While the female isn't a midnight she is so melanistic that I noticed she was missing a pelvic fin. A closer look revealed that it had been replace with a melanoma.

Hopefully black to black = more black.
