The Sire is vital platinum pastel (4-ray) HM plakat with impressive broad dorsal fin. The dame is a allmost completely clean platinum white (4-ray) PK female and a spawn sibling to the male.
The offspring (F2) will be HM PK with a chance of getting DT PKs. The color of the fry will be light bodied varying from platinum white to platinum pastel and/or multi, maybe with some degree of marbling.

The Dame is also mother of BT051105A.

   
 
 
   

17/09/05: Pair spawned. The male has build a very strong/thick bubblenest underneath the styrofoam.
18/09/05: The eggs hatched. The Sire is taking excellent care of them.
19/09/05: Fry in free-swimming stage, removed the Sire.
20/09/05: The fry is feeding very well on artemia!
25/09/05: Made a picture of two 1 week old fry. All the fry are light bodied fry.

   
   

11/10/05: The fry is feeding well on microworms and artemia. They are not growing extremely fast but are going steady. There are also some doubletails spotted. I managed to make some new pictures of the fry (see below).

   
   
   

15/11/05: The fry are growing well on tubifex and artemia. All the fry in this spawn are platinums, from which some show a bit of red wash. The DTs in this spawn seem to have equally distributed lobes.
18/11/05: Made some pictures of the fry now about 9 weeks old.

   
   
   

30/11/05: Made some new pictures. The fry is developing very well and the first males start showing themselves. Today I jarred the first male from this spawn and I was very surprised to see that half an hour after jarring he already spread his tail the full 180 degrees (with only 2-ray)!!

   
 
 
   

10/12/05: Pictures of 2 seperated males from this spawn (12 weeks old).
