What have I got here??

Post  bridgegirl99 on Fri 27 Jun 2014, 20:29

This is my only veil, He (only cos he's handsome imho) Is a Pearlscale (clever aren't I lol), but I'm fascinated by him (If you can see he's a she I'd love to know as well).

The black (and he is without the flash) is a matt black, he has small patches of silver which are really shiny, the orange I guess because its on his head isn't pearlscale is just orange, he has some flecks of yellow on one side, and his gill plates are blue.

I've had him about a year now, and he's shown absolutely no interest in any of my other Angels, I don't have any others that look like him so maybe thats why??



What variety would make an interesting pairing with him? Would a blue be totally a waste of time? I have a Koi and a Sunset blusher, but neither of those are interested, could all be the same sex of course lol, I'd love some direction here.

Some kind of marble, probably either M/M, two marble genes, or a marble with a gold, or gold marble gene.

As to what to pair him with, I'd be inclined to wait until he or she, chooses a partner, but a pairing to a blue or blue ghost would give you some nice marbles if nothing else, and personally I think blue marbles are some of the nicest blue varieties, so that pairing would put you on the road to getting some!

So the best idea would be to have a tank with all my nicest fish and hope he makes a good choice?? I love you and leave all the not so pretty ones to get on with it elsewhere??

That's the jist of it! In my experience self selected pairs tend to be more stable, and more likely to parent raise, although it doesn't always follow!

Well he's a she!! At last she's decided who she fancies! she's picked my very handsome Smokey male, he has imo lovely colouring and has proved a good dad in the past, so hopefully he'll guide her, they're currently cleaning a flower pot! bounce Laughing cheers

Well I'm going to have to wait for their second attempt, for every 1 egg she gets on the pot 3 are dropping to the floor! lol she does a run up the pot, but then keeps laying while she's swimming away, eggs going everywhere! Crying or Very sad

Well sad news............. I never got to a second spawn, I'm really not sure what went wrong, the eggs got eaten, and a day or so later she went down hill rapidly, he on the other hand looked fine, so I popped him back in my main tank, so I got paranoid about why she died, I was assuming the water maybe? I'd put a sponge filter that had seeded in another tank in with them, but he was fine, so I put a very runtish baby into the tank, just to prove to myself........... and its thriving and growing in leaps and bounds..... so not the water!

I'm annoyed with myself now, I'd had her a couple of years, she'd not shown any interest in breeding till recently, I gave her a chance and she died!! confused Evil or Very Mad I'm sure it wasn't him, unless he was beating her up when I wasn't looking, as he's never shown aggression before and she was intact, so a complete mystery Mad

Sorry to hear that, sadly it does happen, and sometimes it's hard to know why.
