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 moods....no two are the same.
I saw one of the babies born today is NOT a black panda...it 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.
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
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 roud:
Wishing everyone else as good a year!
