The Sire is vital platinum white (4-ray) HM plakat with impressive long and broad ventrals which popped up in one of my longfinned spawns. The dame is a metallic blue SD (showing some masking) which is carrying both plakat as marble genes. This combination should be the start of my plakat line and is actually brings three different (thai) bloodlines together.
The offspring (F1) probably will be short-finned but there is a chance some long-finned fish will pop-up. The color of the fry can be metallic blue, platinum white, copper/gold maybe with some degree of marbling showing up as they get older.

   
 
 
   

21/05/05: Pair spawned. The male has build a wonderfull nest underneath
the styrofoam and is guarding the eggs very well!

25/05/05: The fry is already feeding very well on artemia/BBS.
30/05/05: The fry is one week old now and growing very well on artemia/BBS. I made a picture of one of the fry!

   
   

12/06/05: There are at least 30+ which are growing very well. Most of the fry seems lightbodied (platinum?) but there are also some fry with more pigment present. There are also some DTs in this spawn but it looks like their lobes are very unequally distributed.
21/06/05: Moved the fry to a bigger tank. There are at least 50 fry left.
25/06/05: The fry is growing very well on BBS/artemia and is starting to show color. There are many platinum whites but it seems that there are also some copper/golds and metallic blues.

   
   
   

12/07/05: The fry is now developing fast on a diet of tubifex, bloodworms and artemia. The nest has been split over two tanks (~40 fry left).
