Pink fins!

New to breeding angels. These are my first 3 successes. I note that the 2 koi have pink fins. Is this a juvenile characteristic or a fin coloration? I expect it will fade with time. These are 7 weeks old.

You don't normally see pink in freshwater angelfish so I would assume it's juvenile colouration that will fade as the fish grow. However, due to angelfish being heavily inbred, it is possible that it is a colour variant and might stay. Grow them up and see what they look like in 6 months.

Will do. Thanks!

Darn -I could not open the video. Would love to see them if you have a still. Iím excited because mom is a mostly white koi and Dad is black- donít know his geneology. These are the first successful fish Iíve gotten as I am still learning the methods ( see prev posts). She is a machine and has started spawning every 7-11 days. I tried letting them care for the babies and lost 2 sets of spawns- they did ok for 2 nights but the third night no more eggsÖ
He is not so much of a machine still not fertilizing the whole lot each time.
I have a new male that I brought in, but if I can get this peach line, I think Ikeep going with him.

Sadly, this whole line ( and hatchery) was lost from Hurricane Irma. The Mother was one I got from a customer that was sold to him as a Koi but lacked the marbling. I took it because it was the closest thing to my Red Caps I have seen since the 80s. She turned out to be a runt but I figured I could breed that out of any fry that looked like her. Needless to say, that didn't happen.
I'm not sure why you had issues with the video. It's marked as public and has been there since the end of 2015.
