    Male : Actually HM Dragon Orange Plakat with Red patches, male swollen as he was hold fry inside cavity, when I removed him from the spawning tank, I was under the impression he had eaten most of the fry, but hold nad behold while acclimatizing him he had just released about over 50 fry inside the container.

    Female : Female was to badly beaten up therefore did not post an updated picture

    Fry : Just over a week old, number could be under 100. Fry doing great feeding them bbs & mws. Feeding them 3 times a day.

    I have taken a top view picture of the fry with my cellphone and the whole base of the tank is spread out with fry. They are doing great and just eating like piglets. I would love to see the colour of these fry when they start getting bigger in the weeks to come. With regular water changes and feeding 3 times a day, show an alarming grow with the fry. Will post pictures later when they grow bigger.

    fry are 11 weeks old. And what a variety of plakat dragon colours and fin types. There is so many colour variation and would rather post pictures and you guys can help me identify the types they are. Both parents died just shortly after the spawn.

    Pictures I will try loading up over next week, going to buy a few small glass containers so that I have a clear view when taking photos of these fry. There is so many colour variation that I would not want to part with them.


    These fry are extremely aggressive at such an early age. I shifted some of the larger fry to a bigger grow-out tank.

    Hi @keith1964

    Post #15 pic 3, I hereby name you "Eagle Green Dragon HM". How does that grab you! Wow!!! Stunning my friend. He is a keeper! Cross him to post #16 pic 5, the red gold dragon on the right hand side of the pic or/and #15 pic 5. Either way, will be stunning! Just a thought.
