Got my new female Hartwegi for my F1 Red Texas/Synspilum. This is going to be Strain 3 in my Fortune Fish project. Let me know what you guys think about this cross! I'm super excited for this cross

im not sure but the female looks more like a fene to me.. im excited bout the cross too.. but man there is a few doubt.. not sure when or if your male is fertile yet..

also.. the other concern i have is hoping the frys will have more of the dad body and not the mom.. for one thing i disliked bout fenes are that their body are pretty long. but patterns, transparent colors and markings are bomb..

good luck bro.. I still on phase one on mine..

SAD??? sad is seeing that wrinkled face in the mirror of a NOBODY and knowing that life is given by Borrowed Time,
And to the Truth is, Being alive and not knowing how to LIVE...
Now that is sad!!!


ONE DAY CLOSER TO DEATH!!!

thanks guys! The male is fertile. I've had wigglers with him and a bp a couple weeks ago but siphoned the batch because i was getting this female. The guy i bought her from says she's confirmed fertile too

Very nice can't wait to see how the fry turn out. As Vans stated hopefully they get more of the dad's body since hartwegi can have long bodies. What would you breed the fry to?

Very nice! I would like to see what the fries look like. Would be interesting if you cross the fries to a female KKP to add the kok genes. Good Luck. Oh yea, F3 you meant?

thanks guys. Yea my goal is to get the colors from the mom, pearls from dad and the dad's mom (pearly rt), and the dad's body. It'd be nice if they came out with either a full flowerline or no flowerline. I'm thinking about introducing a kkp or red shock into this project. But idk if i want the fading gene in this project

This is strain 3, F2. The male is F1 from my rtXsyn cross.

Strain 1 = F1xF1
Strain 2 = F1xSRD
Strain 3 = F1xHartwegi

The next step will be to pick and choose my favorite fry from the strains 1, 2, & 3 and cross the strains for F3.

Thanks! They were lip locking at first and trying to get at each other through the divider for the first couple days. After 1 week I took out the divider and they were fine together. 1 week of living together, on pellets and some blood worms, and she laid :D

Ahh.. yeah i think it can be difficult to breed sometimes, so it's good to know several diff tricks/methods. I'll keep that in mind if i attempt to breed later down the line. Well pump those babies up and get some mp's out :)

1 month update on the fry grinning

They are fattys and I moved them (1.5 weeks ago) from a 20 long to a 40 breeder to give them more space. Was gone for 2 days for thanksgiving and they were chewing on each others tails already! They all had nipped tails. Couldnt believe it... so small but already fighting. More space and more food and they are growing so fast.

rip to this project. My best growout died during my move a couple months ago. I have 1 more that i'm growing out just to see what he'll look like but since I was after pearls and the pearly one died, I will be heading a new direction. Here's a pic of the pearly one
