    Green dragon spawn hatched 10/8/11

    Post by Nataliey on Sat Aug 13, 2011 10:06 am

    Just a few photos of my recent small spawn, they spawned for 7 hours but couldnt get the hang of it until right at the end the male just couldnt keep a hold of the female in the wrap and when he did it was pretty much done!

    This is the male he's a HM green dragon import:



    The female is a green and black HM import:


    Male building nest under bubble wrap and IAL:










    Some of the eggs after spawning:


    Now they are hatched and the male ate all the unfertilised eggs im only left with 10+ they are now 2 days old:








    Spot the fry on the moss ball:

    Ooh soooo tiny! Have you sorted out a number 9 for Siobhan yet? Laughing I would so love to have one that looks like dad,- but it would have to be a female version. Unless of course I can find somewhere to hide another wee tank Laughing

    The IBC wants us to call them Blue and Yellow or Purple and Yellow instead of Mustard gas because the term was copyrighted? I think. Someone originally had a Blue Betta with Yellow wash and couldn't get rid of it so they came up with a catchy name for it. I have Blue and Yellow, Green and Yellow; Brown and Yellow (Chocolate) as well as Gold and Yellow. Some of my Purple/Reds have Yellow instead of Red wash but I still refer to them as whatever color and Yellow instead of Mustard gas. The Thai and Indonesian breeders still use the term MG and probably will continue to do so. It's not like the original MG person can sue them all.

    Here's 1 photo iv managed to get of one of the babies, i didnt expect to have any after my holiday away but they proved me wrong!

    Very tiny still and white/clear which makes it hard to see them, but look closely at the photo and you should see a tiny body next to the dead leaf:

    I certainly would breed them again just to see if they get it right. Nice looking pair Nat.
