    Finally Set Up A New Spawn!!

    Post by MoonShadow on Mon Apr 18, 2011 6:36 am

    Set these guys up last night, I haven't been having luck lately with spawning! My last successful spawn was in January and the fry only made it to 2 weeks old No and since then I haven't even been able to get the pairs to spawn. So I set these guys up last night, they're in the best condition and ready to go! No idea what the cross will get me, it will be a surprise I guess!!!

    Male - Extended Red HMPK



    Female - Black Marble (with green/blue iridescence) SD from Chard

    I put her back in the vase last night before I went to sleep

    I released her a little after 2pm today, they began spawning around 2:30pm. Very nice spawners, no damage to either fish so far. They wrapped for about an hour, no eggs, are taking a break now and he's working on the nest. Im hoping they'll get back to it soon. But I know sometimes it can take 3 or 4 hours before the female begins releasing eggs!

    Sorry for the horrible photos, my camera does not take good pictures when the water has IAL in it and is tinted!














    And a video!

    Breeding is just not my thing these days... woke up to no eggs and no nest... it was a first time breeding for both of them so its possible the eggs were infertile... I'm going to recondition the pair, they were so wonderful, quick and gentle, I think next time they'll get it, I'll probably try spawning them again in about 3 weeks. I put a new pair in the tank today that I am very excited about, I will start a new thread about them!
