Here are some cobalt tads that are twins. I should have snapped some pics as eggs but I didn't. I thought this might be a little unsual till I had a clutch of bicolor eggs with twin eggs the very next week. I suppose it's like double yolk eggs with chickens. Ya feed 'em good and sometimes it just happens.

If you look at them with the right lighting, you should see that the tadpoles are seperated by a membrane within the larger envelope. As long as that envelope is there they aren't true twins.. It is more common than you would think. It was discussed at least once before (see http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/me...37-monozygotic-green-black-auratus-twins.html

It is a little different with double yolked chicken eggs are those are both within the specific membranes.

I'm gonna look much closer should it happen again. Maybe sometime they won't be seperated by a membrane and they'll be actual twins.
