Remarks:

MD2 is one of the white stripe offspring I passed to Mike Doty. It’s interesting to note that both fish had split first spines on the dorsal fin – while the Lightning in the pairing eventually saw the spine atrophy, this white stripe or “morse code” male utlimately saw the spine fully grow in, ultimately revealing a very nice clean front dorsal fin.

Mike initially held them in a small nano reef, the Lightning (MD1) being given roam of the tank while the white stripe was held in a net box.

In late November, 2013, Mike moved the fish into a larger 20 gallon aquarium, and successfully paired them.

They are now a solidly paired couple.
