    I have been crawling through this site forever and finally decided to join!

    I am not making a habit of breeding my fish, it's just the first time they spawned so I thought why the heck not?

    On the night of the 16th my two adult goldies (who I assumed were both male) decided to get frisky and I have a batch of eggs. I see their eyes and their bodies now, so I'm excited! I really don't know what to expect from the fry though...

    I am expecting a lot of culls. Dad is a Petsmart oranda and Mom is a panda butterfly telescope I got from my local family-owned fish store. I am asking what the fry will look like because I don't know a penny's worth of information on goldfish genetics!

    Dad: (with a black spot on his tail after a little injury, now healed. It's my best photo of him, he hates the camera and flees)

    Mom: (who is much more photogenic)

    Any ideas?

    Unfortunately, else than learning how to raise fry from eggs, fry from such unrelated fish will mostly/only be culls.

    Welp, I guess the experience is mostly what I am going for. I kinda I always knew there was barely a chance. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum Paloma. You may at least get some cute fish to sell in your families store and maybe keep a few for yourself.

    Good luck and happy fishkeeping, Jim.

    That's a lovely butterfly though! Good luck in raising the babies.
