    Wallstad tank

    I think Diana Walstad recomended to start small tank with shrimp first. She has an article on her website for small tank with shrimp. For plants that always work is hornwort, but it is killer plants in hard water. It can grow so fast and take all the nutrients from weaker plants. Almost all...

    Im Thinking About Breeding But...

    Sometimes, pay more can help to minimize the long term cost. Like buying a good pair maybe more expensive than using a pet store betta, but in the long run, the fry can be sold faster which will reduce the maintaining cost of hundred of betta fish.

    Spawn Log: Snow White Hmpk X Marble Pk

    I also never expect that. Their mother's phenotype was hidden in her marble gene. Her geno also wasn't clear because the breeder only told me that she's from marble line and I judge based on her sibling which were opaque with marbling pattern (black and white). But I'm glad I got so many color...

    Fry age: 5 Weeks old I've jarred some fry that have shown good trait, but I don't want to disturb them so I only took their pict in my dark fish room without the proper lighting. The pict quality is so bad and here are they: One fish has a really nice dorsal with 10 primary ray and I've...

    Thank you some of the fry even have been sold at this young age. I never expect that people get so interested in them. I think this hobby is really fun. Definitely worth to try. I estimate about 50% were white but now, there are only about 60 fry or so (34 white fry have been sold)...

    Spawn Log: Snow White Hmpk X Marble Pk

    Fry age: 4 weeks old. It's funny when only in one night, one fry completely changed it's color. The other day, more fry changed their color. I don't know if that was just they started to coloring up or just the marble gene. Most of the fry now become steel blue with strong metallic layer. Some...

    Future Pair?

    It depend on the male. Can you upload his pic please? If I choose blindly, I'll suggest the yellow one. Yellow koI is rare and the result in F1 will be red koI anyway, but atleast the fry will become yellow geno.

    Thank you. I never expect the metallic gene from their mom. She didn't show any metallic layer nor her sibling. That's very interesting surprise for me.

    Fry age: 3 weeks old Their growth rate is getting faster in their new tank. Now, the biggest one is about 0.8 inch long. They are mostly around 0.6 to 0.7 inch. Their finnage are also nice, but they started to show red wash. I wish the red color doesn't only affect their fin but also their body...

    Future Pair?

    This spawn is really interesting. It's rare to see yellow koi. I even never see them in real life. I'll following this for sure.
