royal blue/black HM male and turquoise/black HM female

Placed a sibling pair in spawn tank a few days ago after conditioning on frozen BS for 2 weeks. The female showed no interest and i was worried that she needed food so i fed her in the spawn tank with pellets. she ate but he ignored the pellets and just kept doing his dance. came home from errands and found eggs in the nest. he is now tending the nest like a good dad. the female is back in her sorority. both have a little torn fins but not too bad.

i had a hard time getting pics as usual so here are some bad ones. ill try and get some better ones later. the fish are from a local breeder and are much better then my last spawn as far as quality goes. i hope the eggs hatch.

my goal for this spawn is to start a melano line.

Good luck!

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Thanks for all the good wishes. Today they hatched. I think between 70 - 100. I'm pretty excited. MW culture is ready. Male will be left in for another 36 hours.

Thanks for the nice comments on my bad pics lol. I have siphoned the bottom and fed MWs. Removed the fake plants and added java moss.

One of the fake plants I had was used in a tank for a week. It had a slimy coat on it. I thought it was algae but now I know it was something else. It came off the fake plant in slimy sheets. It made a big mess that I siphoned up. It seems to have no effect on fry. Hoping for the best.

Note... Don't use unfamiliar things in spawn tank.
