Meet Migaloo 2: Electric Boogaloo


Recommended Posts

Had to share this guy. Not to many on here now that were around when Migaloo popped up in my 2010 spawn (my first betta spawn in a good 12 years or so...), so this will only make sense to a few.

First of all, here is Migaloo (named after the white humpback whale, as he was pure white when named and was the biggest of the spawn.) He appeared as a random coloured fish in a blue marble spawn and soon became a forum superstar ;) (or so he liked to think...)



I recently spawned a cambodian orange CT and a red marble cambodian CT and thought I had lost the lot to an aggressive mystery illness that killed all (or so I thought) in only a few days. I pulled out the bodies and left the tank until I had time to pull the lot out and sterilize everything. Yesterday, I started to dismantle the tank and discovered 6 runty fry hiding behind the sponge filter. I quickly jarred them up and have them on an all you can eat blackworm buffet. Hopefully, they will start to grow. They are severely undersized for their age.

Surprisingly though, I spotted this little guy who reminded me of someone familiar.... I think it is a sign :)


I have 3 that are this colouring and 3 cambodian.

Thanks guys, I love the happy accidents like this :) I'm hoping it is a sign that my bad luck has finally turned and I can finally work towards my goals. I have acspawn of 3 week old mini skirts growing out and a couple of other pairs in tanks. All going well, by March I will have CTs, HMPKs, HMs, VTs and phase 1 of my CTPK project... ;)
