my snow white and bb pics
Just took a couple of shots of my BBs and a Snow white.
This is one of my BB males.
Here's Big Mamma due any day now and look who's keeping her Panda!
One of my favourite Snow whites.

Thank you. I DO love the BBs.

Big Mamma kicked off 6 of her babies this am right in time for New Year! :proud: She's still got another 6+ on her, so expect the rest to arrive tomorrow/later today.

Of the 6 I could see....3 look like BKK Pandas :bounce: the others could be BBs, it was too hard an angle to see clearly as they were in the corner of the breeder box on the front.

Here's what I saw, the arrow shows the baby in the floss.

Amazing specimens! The BB is one of my favorites, : wishful thinking::rolleyes:

the addiction continues...

I just love how they manage to change their blue coloration with different things. I found the females get extremely blue when berried, some of the males go from pale blue to almost turquoise depending on their two are the same.

I saw one of the babies born today is NOT a black has bands but is paler in color than the rest, so Im wondering now if it might be a Wine Red....who knows ;)

As long as I can keep them alive I will be very happy with whatever color is in this group. So far my other baby BKK Panda is growing good.

Happy New Year to one and All! :biggrin:

I am very happy this am as my Big Mamma has now released the rest of the babies and they are all happily stuck to the glass or on the filter floss.

I counted 10+ might be more inside the floss area but I can't see that well in the breeder box. I did see one that is definitely not blue panda (indicating bkk panda later on) in fact it has a red tinge to the body but is definitely banded, so I think it will be a WR panda, and another one looks like the head is all blue didn't see any bands, so thinking this one is a BB :cool:

Mamma is totally empty as she showed me her underside this am, so she will be returning to the tank hopefully for round 2 with some of my eager and lonely males ;)

I read somewhere that baby shrimps don't move away from the area they are born in for a few days, so that's a good thing as I now know where to look for them (which is on the filter floss, loaded with biofilm for them to eat)

What a great start to 2013 :proud:
Wishing everyone else as good a year!
