    CT spawn round 2!!

    Post by Nataliey on Sun Jan 23, 2011 6:40 am

    Decided to spawn my crowntail pair again as Sophie was ready to pop again it looked so uncomfortable for her and to benefit Red her boyfriend had been blowing bubblenests so put them together a few days ago looked very uninterested BUT Sophie stripped up a lot yesterday and she was pretty big as you can see here:


    Red still didnt look very interested when i let her out yesterday so put her back in the chimney over night and this morning i let her out again...from then Red was doing his wiggle thing and she was under the nest waiting for him like bowing down to him.

    From 10am this morning until around 5pm this afternoon they where totally besotted by one another until of course he had 'finished with her' and chased her away.

    Here's a few photo of the pair wrapping and the eggs:











    Eggs under the leaf:

    He was very good the last spawn but i suppose that doesnt mean anything if he's hungry Shocked He did panic me earlier when i looked and the eggs where GONE!!!! He'd moved them so i snapped a few photos of them.

    Daddy with his eggs:

    No they will be 7 weeks old now getting big but most of the fry that look grey have died and really want some fry that look like mum, i know they dont colour up till later but i think the pink fry will probably colour up red like dad.

    @Kel ~ well i just had a talk with him this morning thinking he's eaten the eggs but after taking a few photos he's moved them into little groups rather than the big group they where in last night.

    Yes thats why...and because they where so good the last time i tried them no nipping one another so no fin/tail damage at all.

    Whereas i just spawned my dragons and the male ate all the eggs as mum was placing them into the nest i wasnt happy!!!!!

    Why did he not eat the spawn the first time then? I didnt condition him the first time and i have a successful spawn, conditioned him this time and he ate every single egg!

    Maybe they weren't fertilised? Or perhaps he didn't feel like being a daddy just right now.

    Is that some reasons why they get eaten Time? That makes it a little better but they looked exactly like the eggs in the previous spawn white...so maybe he thought 26 kids where enough, lol!!

    They'll often eat unfertilised ones to save them growing fungus. Lots of protein in eggs Smile

    Don't take my word as law lol, but it MIGHT be A reason why...
