Congrats Louis!

That reduced pattern one is going to make for some unpredictable offspring!

Do you know the locality of the top pair? Their colours are so different to the specimen in the lower pictures.

Thanks guys !

I'm hoping to get something interesting out of that first pair.

Wes, the reticulated pair were produced by Deon and the parent(s) come from Tyrone's "striped" line of corals so I'm holding thumbs for something cool.

Regards
Louis.

Also can't wait to see what that first pair produces. Love the orange on the second pair as well.

Lol, makes more sense now. Although a coral with cross shaped markings would look very cool!

Loving the spotted one. Reminds me that I need to pair mine up as well... Good luck with breeding.

Thanks Heidi !

If you male isn't keen you know where to drop the girl haha...;)

Thus far it looks like both females above are gravid but female nr.3 hasn't been keen on mating just yet.

Regards
Louis.
