Picked this male/female up from the airport on Friday. Thanks to "m_class2g":) for smooth transaction. Rays where eating the same night I picked them up! I can't wait to see how the patterns turn out as they grow! Female has more of the leo traits and the male more of the pearl traits(check out the tails!). Love the spots on the outer edge of the male. Best of all is they have the black ray blood and I didn't have to sell my house to buy them! LOL

Progression

Just shy of 8 months later. Should grow a little faster as they are in the 450 gallon. They are darkening and the spots are whitening. I am starting to like the female even more!!

great job raising the pair so far! you picked 2 great ones from my hybrid import last yr. hopefully one day she can be mixed with a bd male. that would make for some outstanding pups!!!

btw, we see lots of pics. how about a video!???

:(Not much luck with videos but I finally got the male to face forward!:D I don't mind at all but these are the slowest growing rays I have had and I think it may have something to do with the pearl genes.

Update:Female still dark but spots haven't whitened up yet. Still to early to say they won't. Can you see the face in between her eyes? Where's waldo? Pretty cool! Male has lightened up in the sand only tank and the spots keep getting whiter. Not to many hybrids with such white spots without the black background. This is going to be a cool looking male when he gets older!
