Very nice josie....I have been meaning to ask you this for some time, why did you choose to only keep on 14 bar in your final eight? Is there anyway to get a photo of him?

Hey Josie,

They are really looking nice. Rick wants a picture of the fish in the center of the video at 2:51. Not the one up front but the 14 bar in the back.

Cool thank you! I was also curious, you crossed a blue SS with a BD, so you should have had (in theory) roughly 50% nine bar (turqs/cobalts) and 50% 14 bar (snakeskins/scorpions). Yet in your final eight, you chose to keep 7 nine bar fish and one 14 bar fish. I was cuirous if this was a conscience discision on your part (you liked the nine bar fish beter) or perhaps only a few of the 14 bar fish survived (they do tend to be weaker at a young age). Not that there is anything wrong at all with the fish you choose, they are gorgeous, just wondered if the 9 bar vs 14 bar played any part in your decision at the time you choose your final eight?

Your theory is correct we got 50/50 it was a very large spawn and we got some very nice fry out of the mix. I prefer the 9 bar over the 14 bar but that 14 bar was very nice and wanted to see him grow up. I still have some of the same spawn left in the fish-room but most of the 14 bars are gone because I think people prefer them. There are a few amazing snakeskin's left from the group that are showing great color and growing nicely that Im growing out for future sales........Josie

What's your reason for typing the word punk? It's disrespectful!

I see you are local... I hope you can explain yourself on why you would post such a word "Punks" in Josie's post... :confused:
