In Vetro Incubation

This is how I incubate my hand spawn squeezes.

The tank with one plate is a Svr squeeze and has 100% fertility. Not a single bad egg. The other dishes are a large 5 fish Bristol Shubunkin in vetro.

Here's an older video of a squeeze (sorry for the bad tripod)

SVR Spawn II 6/16/11 12:15 pm

Went to feed the fish and the SVR were already eating.  That means eggs so I squeezed the male, then the female and got a plate of a few hundred eggs.  6 days from the last spawn.

Bristol Shubunkin (Metalic Parker x Matte Wolf) 6/11/11

Saw spawning activity this morning so I squeezed her in to a petri dish and grabbed a matte male from the Wolf OX strain.  Should result in a good outcross (OX) and give 100% calicos.

Bristol Shubunkin (Wolf ox strain) Calico x Matte Squeeze

Female who was spawning.

Her Pinky Matte suiter. A large strong male for a pinky matte.  Much larger than the other pinky mattes in the the group.


Side View Ranchu 6/10/11 Spawn

These are my first Side View Ranchu (SVR).  They were a gift from FastRails in San Francisco.  They were born and bred by Boss Ranchu in Thailand and imported by Paul at RanchuManiax.

They got here a week ago and are already dropping eggs.

Squeezed the medium female and the large male.

Having a sandy bottom in the tank allows you to net eggs out of the sand.

Can't scrape eggs off a bare glass bottom but you can net them out of sand.  Hope they incubate well.

Here they are in their old home, Thanks to FastRails!  The white on the head was treated successfully.

FastRails kept the fish with the Yellow X.
