I'll call it my refresher spawn. Been years since my last :)

Introduced mum and dad for 2 days was trying for 3 or 4 but mum had other ideas and jumped in with dad while I went to pick the kids up from school came home to find eggs and they kept at it for 4-5 hours. 5/9/14

They are so cute!!! Living with some guppy fry as well. Colours are coming in to mostly the iridescent. When does the body colour come in? I don't remember xD

Also there are a few fry with black tips on their anal fin is that colour or a problem?

Great photos. My fry colour comes in around 5 ish weeks. I have 3 spawns atm, 9wks, 8wks & 7wks old. Not sure about the black tips? May just be their colouring.

some great photos!
when colour develops depends on the colours
irids will pop up pretty early (as you can see) yellows for example take a bit longer though
what are you expecting from the spawn?
and what fin type is mum? cant see her too well in the bottle :)

To be honest I'm not sure the store was selling her as a veil but she has a pretty large span like a super delta. Might try to get a better pick of her later. But I know dad is a dragon. Not sure if he's a halfmoon or rose tail though.

Some of the fry are developing the red wash in the fins now as well

she looks to have 4+ branching so i think your right about being a super delta.

That would be good :) that means the spawn should be super deltas and possibly a couple of hms.

Excellent. You'll be able to develop lots of different lines out of that batch.
