    I guess the ct rays are coming from your male.. vt's aren't usually selected specifically for spawning and it's just a case of grab a male and grab a female see what they produce.

    probably been a ct in the mix somewhere back in the gene pool

    crowntail is also a dominant trait which is why you see the odd small spikes even on line bred halfmoons.

    thats how the ct actually came about, breeding selective hm's with slight spikes and aiming for longer and longer spikes in the following generations

    Went to Shadow's today to pick up some babies, they are so cute.. I cant believe the difference in the sizes of the babies, some are still so tiny you can only just see them lol and the others are massive!!!
    I nearly very nearly stole his mustard gas male, a stunning fish, mind you they all are...
    Thanks for the coffee and your time having a good old chat Mick and I forgot the ladies name sorry Sad

    Promoter ??????? Is this a self given job...lmao

    Anyway shadow I would have taken some off your hands too but I'm too far away . It would give anyone who takes them the experience of bringing up the young. Good job shadow on your 1st spawn. Looks like it was VERY successful.
