F2 Melano geno HM

Recommended Posts

 

Its time for F2 for my melano genos. Both also carry hmpk so hopefully I get some hmpk back aswell. This spawn is kinda exposed to the elements with no heater but so far they are doing well

Their parents were melano hm x royal blue hmpk

And heres the happy couple, they werent my first choice but the girl for my best pair from this spawn wasnt ready so they can wait until next time

These guys are about 10 days and eating bbs with big daily water changes, looks like a mix of light and dark bodied fish

Heres a few of them

These guys are doing well, I scooped some into a beanie to have a look at them and they are getting colours! :D. Im going to have to transfer them out of their little 9 litre tub soon.

Almost killed these guys the other day... When I do wc I just peg the tube to where I want the water level to drain and I can just go and do other things while its siphoning out... but this time the peg slipped and when I came back they were flopping in a few mm of water.... so I freaked out and just dumped a bucket of freshwater straight into their tub, (the fresh water was waaay hotter than their tub water ~30-35C compared to their 26-27) but they were all sweet about it. They didnt sulk, or die on me. They just went back to business as usual. Guess they are hardier than I gave them credit for...

Anyway heres the biggest of the group, so sparkly.. all the rest still look pretty much like the previous pic

These are pretty too. Glad you didn't lose them, they are hardier than they're given credit for. ;)

Haha these guys dont even deserve descriptions, I found 2 on the floor the other day.... and had to cull a few bad scales

Im going away back to nz in feb, so Ive got a fish sitter to pop in twice a week to feed them, but I think I might separate the bigger ones from the smaller ones in case they choose to act on their hunger

Haha thanks Im scared that everyone will think Ive started to pick up an aussie accent!

Everyones been rearranged in sizes, Ive had to combine spawns into the same tubs but luckily they are different colours so unless they all turn cello on me I should hopefully be able to refind them again

Some of the pk boys that popped up in f2. Most females from this spawn arent looking very pretty so far... hopefully they blossom into something half presentable lol

Thanks :-) the last guy was my favourite from the spawn but he managed to fit through a tiny gap in the lid and land on the floor the other day :-(

Almost all boys have been jarred from this spawn now
