Migaloo is Sprouting


Recommended Posts

I just love when fry reach this stage and start to show what they will become. Mind you, with the marble gene in this spawn, nothing is guaranteed!

Here is a photo I took of Migaloo on Friday:

His body looks a little short due to distortion in the jar...

I moved the fry into a 4ft tank on Saturday and Migaloo and the other jarred fry into bigger containers.

I took this photo an hour ago:

Looks like he may turn out to be salamander (I know, it is a loosely used colour term, but it gives a rough idea.)

I hope he keeps the cellophane butterfly banding on the ends of his fins!

He's absolutely hideous! I'll bear the burden and take him for you Shadoh and hide him in a dark room where no one will ever have to see him.. You won't have to live with the shame of such an ugly fry! :whistling:

*lol* You know I'm just joking, he's gorgeous, and I suspect he's on steroids with such growth! Well done. :)

@fishish: Thanks! Migaloo originally got his name because he is the whale of the spawn and was pure white. The spawn was divided between 2 20ltr tanks.

@Sarah: Thankyou, I hope he keeps this colouring too. I'm hoping to breed him for his colouring.

@Yan: I know, I have to avert my eyes whenever I feed him. Where did such a hideously deformed fry come from??? Thankyou for the offer, but it is a burden that I must bear alone! :P :P :D

As for steroids, he is just a pig. It's the grindals that are on steroids! LOL I feed them (the grindals) liquifry for egg layers.

I'm afraid so... He's not going to settle for just any female now he thinks he's special. I'm glad my laptop isn't waterproof, or he'd be ordering a harem of $2000.00 female albino dragons off aquabid :D :blink:

He has no choice - a sibling girl is all he is going to be offered! :yes:

You can almost hear his inner dialogue when he is swimming around... "Swim...POSE!...swim...I wonder if I gave them my good side?...POSE!..."

That's so cute! Posing fish are great! Hmm.. I guess he'll have to settle for the sister. :giggle: Carnation used to pose.. but not since he has been shredded. He comes to see me if I call him (all my fish come when I call, I just say their name - I don't know if I they can hear me, but it is pretty impressive when I show people at least) and put my finger on the glass. Works every time. BUT, if I have a camera, he swims away. Smarty, doesn't want to show the world a GIRL beat him up. I think he is pretty ashamed. :(

Oooohhhhhh!!! He is just adorable!

I love how the purply-pink is coming along! I cannot wait to see how he looks as an adult - but then, I'm sure you are even more impatient for him to grow up!

How is the Migaloo-girl-to-be going?

He's a looker for sure. And to think, I thought he was going to turn out to be an ugly fish when he first started to show red wash in his fins... :D Still don't know if the bride to be is a girl or boy yet... :blink::blush: If not there are a few with similar colours, so hopefully 1 will be a female...
