I personally think they're gorgeous.

I haven't updated in a while, so here's my update. The largest fry is about half an inch long, I can see red and black with metallic green on the fins, they are eating like crazy, there are seven left, and I'm hoping to spawn my imbellis next. One of these days Ima gonna upload pics..... One of these days.....

I feed them about 3 to 4 times a day. They're large enough that I can see that they're pooping.

The fry are still doing well. I'm planning on doing a large water change today. I am feeding the fry decap bbs and premium green fish food. (ground up) They're getting large enough that soon, decaps will be too small for them. I can't wait till they're old enough to move out of the tank. Then I can spawn my imbellis. Hopefully, I will be able to sell imbellis fry which will give me the $$$$$ boost that I need to get smaragdina, mahachai, and maybe even stiktos.

The fry are growing rapidly. I couldn't feed them yesterday because I got food poisoning, but they're still doing well. The largest one is over an inch long.

The fry are still maturing quickly. I think that the biggest one is a male because of the length of his anal fin. The fry should turn out really pretty. There's a lot of metallic green on the fins. My guess is that they'll have red fins with a bunch of metallic colors on parts. The fry should be giants because the father is almost three inches long and the female is two and a quarter.

Still growing. They are liking flake foods now. Can't wait till they're sexually mature.

Dern fry decided to catch some disease without my permission. They've been flashing and have clamped fins. I was hoping these would get to be sexually mature so I could at least have some adults before I spawn imbellis

They're definitely stunted. Idk what happened, but I don't think they'll make it. My plakat pair has dropsy so I'm gonna be down to 5 imbellis and 1 imbellis hybrid. I am thinking that I will try breeding a dragonscale halfmoon with my imbellis hybrid and get quarter imbellis hmpks.

Have you considered that it might be genetics that are interacting with each other as to why they are stunted?

No. There's nothing with the genetics. The parents are large. Almost giants. The parents both have dropsy now, so these are my probably gonna be my last plakat splendens.
