Are the Calicos not as prolific as the Silver tips? 20 eggs seem a bit low for BNP's.:confused:
they are just as prolific.;)
just a lower survival rate from the cave to free swim.....

Congrats with your spawn , a question for you or anyone here , how do they get those long fins ? I've rarely seen long finned versions , only on here.

I think they originally came from Patrick, they were raised by Adrian (Adz1) and then I traded some L183's for them.

Long fins are just a genetic variation of the fish. They are still rare because they are new to the hobby. I am assuming that it would be widely available here by next year as people who own them will have babies for sale. All this is thanks to our sponsors for bringing them in :)
