Smile First Spawn!! Red Halfmoons <3

Hey Y'all!
I am very proud to announce *bumbumbumbuuuum* that my first spawn is (so far) a success!!

Day One (Sunday, 1-13-13) - pair introduced and released
Day Two (Monday, 1-14-13) - pair spawned while I was at school. Eggs visible, male tending to nest. Female hiding, female removed.
Day Three & Four (1-15 - 1-16) - Male tends to nest
Day Four, evening (1-16) - Fry free swimming, father removed. ~ >20 fry. All appear to be healthy.

Fry are currently in a 20g, divided.
(sorry for the cruddy pictures, of the parents, I am having some problems right now XD. Will upload better soon!!!!)
Father : Indefensible (Indy)

PS - I coulden't find a mirror - hence knife. Plus, it looks cool

Mother : Moment of the Halfmoon Bay (Mo)

Chil'uns (Fry)

Growout/Spawn/Current Tank

I also have a video blog in the Journal page, if you want to check that out!
Tell me what you think! Any tips, tricks, ect. greatly appreciated!!!

Really special thanks to a few special people out there, Mo, Mr.V, IndianaBetta, ect. - THANK YOU!!! Without these special people, I would not have the fish or be the person I am now! :D Love Ya!!

Over and out -

I use DVD's as mirrors

Congrats to you

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
