    Black Orchid X Copper F2

    Post by Chard56 on Wed Apr 20, 2011 1:22 pm

    Here are some pictures of the F2 offspring from the F1 sibling spawn. I got Double Black, Black Orchid, Copper, Copper Black and Black Devil in CT, HMPK, Super Delta and Halfsun. Don't ask me why I got all the different colors and tail types that's just my Copper/Gold genes at work.

    Wassy82, I don't see that happening any time soon, sorry! Maybe in about 6 months or so when I have his babies grownout. I would like to see what he grows into first.

    Thanks Dave! Now I can take a few matching sibling pairs and start new lines with them.

    You're tempting me to reconsider my vow not to divide my 10gl tanks into three chambers!

    I have so many varieties of swearing to I won't even pretend to know which style I used.

    My favorite is the one where I swear to not swear to anything. I swear thats the one I used!

    A little update on this spawn. I've sold several and others are starting to really show their potential. A few of the CT's are getting the curls because my water's PH is so high it makes their rays curl up. I don't have that problem with my Gold and Copper CT's, it just seems to affect some of the Super Black ones. There's CTPK's and some Veiltails but they're pretty! Steel, Black Orchid; Black Devil and Super blacks with some Copper thrown in for good measure. Not what I read was supposed to come out of this spawn but as usual my Copper/Gold line has to change things up.
