    Marble HMPK x Pale blue PK

    Post by Nataliey on Sun Jul 10, 2011 10:31 pm

    I just dont believe it after all my moaning and groaning about HMPK males being too aggressive to my females well one has just really suprised me!

    The male is an Indonesian import marble white and mint green/blue HMPK and the female is a pale blue PK i raised myself... cheers

    They are wrapping finally as i type this he's been so vicious to her all morning and i was about to put her back in the chimney until the heavens opened outside and it began to thunder and i changed my mind!!!

    Im glad i did because they are wrapping now.

    Here are the pair:














    And iv just looked and they are wrapping and she's dropping eggs already cheers

    It feels fanastic my first time ever to spawn one of my own and im very protective over her especially when he was being rough with her this morning.

    They are still wrapping and dropping eggs now! Very Happy

    It is but its the male looking after the eggs i really hate iv had so many males eat the eggs and you wonder how he can be hungry after the amount you fed them while conditioning them!

    He looks like hes doing very well with the nest and the eggs. Its ment to be very good if hes alway gurgling them and moving the eggs around. Its when he does nothing the whole time we need to worry. But hes doing everything perfect :-)
