I tell ya what... the work you're doing is pretty inspiring. I think I'm going to have to join this little CTPK project of yours.

It's fantastic how you can go back through the generations and see progress like this.

With bigger spawn sizes you obviously get more of a choice and chance of getting the combinations you need to progress.

Starting out with well bred stock in the first place, obviously gives you an advantage in getting to where you want to go.

Fry are looking very well.

I guess you might also change your aims along the way. Surprise pop ups like the Butterfly appearing might see an offshoot from the original aim?

I also appreciate your photography skills.

They never stop long enough for the camera to focus properly. Hundreds of photos for 1 to use!

Previous spawn I had around 60 fry. I wanted to keep so many but not enough room.

Aim is CTPK, obviously ;) and colours are steel blue, copper, turquoise & marble. Colours at the moment are butterfly, turquoise, grizzle & marble LOL. :D

It takes a far few photos to get the not blurry one's too. :D

5 males moved into a tank. No aggression, just wanted to give them a bit more room. Around 10 each in other tanks & 10 jarred in another. Had to cull 2 today due to deformaties so spawn count now at 38.

I like how you've done your barriers. Makes the tank multi function. And the plastic sheets store away flat. Can they see each other?

I love it too. They can sort've see each other but not until they're removed. :)
