First BKK Berry (pic added)


I'm not sure how it's even possible, given how small my BKK still are, but last night there was MUCH excitement in the breeder box (so much that my dinner guests even commented on it) and tonight I swear to god one of the largest ones is berried. She was strutting around and fanning her clutch like a bad@ass momma when I got home from work.

You've seen how bad my pics are! I'll try to get one tomorrow though.

I have waaaaay more male than female CBS. Hoping that doesn't happen with my TB too.

Ok, snapped a couple. They're crappy cell phone pics, but you can clearly see her ORANGE eggs!

I am amazed how the prices have come down. When I fell in love with them, they were like $800+ each and no one in the U.S. even had one, then they were $350 and there was one U.S. source/importer, then $100 ... and then suddenly Nick had them and they were the same price (or cheaper!!!) than the fancy branded PRLs that everyone was talking about (my god, just look at how the prices of non-PRL SSS have come down!). I love how the hobby just keeps moving. And it's so fun to watch people here developing their own strains (Nessies, the Black Cherries, etc.).
