You can tell it is an insect by it's eyes, antennae and legs.

Very small but well documentable Bristol Shubunkin squeeze/spawn. They were spawning and eating their eggs till noon when I went to feed the fish. Hand spawned a small/tiny wildtype female to two males: an orange and black nacreous and a fairly good calico.

A new photo to add to the favorite picture file.
Will have to retake with a plate full of eggs.

Black and orange male below the petri dish.

Adults floating in a 20 inch pan floating in a plywood tub with the 6 inch petri floating in the pan.

Here is how I hand spawn Bristol Shubunkins.  Sorry the camera mount kept falling but you get the idea.  This was a small spawn of approximately 100 embryos.  When the plate hatched there were 3 bad eggs.
