BK,

The more I look at my fish the more I'm confused on how big they are. Ha.

I would say the smallest of the 2 EBJD's is prob about 3 inches, and the larger one perhaps 3.25"-3.5".

Do you recommend the 1"ers or the 1/2"ers?

How fast will those 1"ers grow? I am going to assume mine are male, so Can you tell if your BGJD's are female?

Ya start doing your research on shipping. I will be out of town next week so we have some time for planning and what not.

I was thinking Paypal? Set up a thing on Ebay or something? I can do mail you a check. Whatever works.

Yes I should be able to rehome the extras if you decide to send them.

The tank is 90 gallons. and I got the 2 EBJD's so what you think...

4 Female BGJD's

or

6 Female BGJD's

You are the one that has paired them off ha Im new at this.

Thanks

Well...what I was thinking! Since I'm not sure I'll be able to pick out females...I was thinking send you 10(that i hope are females) and you pay the shipping and whatever you suppose its worth to you...given this be kind of a trial run on my end

Mine usually take 6-8 months or so before they really mature and hit that color / growth spurt. I have 7 or 8 bgjd that are about 6 weeks currently, debating on trading them for another line of bg., the last batch I got didn't have any bg females in it.

Alright. Well after lots of consideration I have come to a conclusion.

I am going to start two tanks. 1 with my first two EBJD's hopefully breeding with a regular JD.

My second tank with the 4 small EBJD's from a different line breeding with a BGJD.

Then crossing the fry from those two together EBJD x BGJD! Thus hopefully producing fry from parents of a EBJD x JD and EBJD x BGJD. Thus producing fry that are strong because they have both JD genes.

Meaning that my final breeding pair being non related and BGJD x EBJD.

I think im on the right track here in producing great lines.

Any advice or thoughts?
