Blue MG Marble x Blue Koi HMPK Spawn Log

1/24/13 Put the pair into spawn tank. Both are virgins and full grown so I wasnt sure if it would take.
1/26/13 Came home and finally saw a small nest. Was hoping for eggs, but didnt see any.
1/27/13 Came home and saw that nest size had doubled, and male was still chasing off my female, but didnt notice any eggs. Looked again a few hours later and noticed there were some eggs, although I'm not sure how many as there are tons of plants near, under, and above the nest blocking my view. Couldnt figure out how to remove the female without disturbing the nest too much, but finally got her out and now the male is playing daddy without any distractions.

I've never had any eggs actually hatch, not sure why, but hopefully this time will work! I absolutely love the coloration on both of these guys so I am very interested to see how these fry will color up.

Will Keep you all updated on any progress (or failures) having to do with this spawn! Wish me luck!!

Now for some pictures :)

Holy... That pair is beyond words... Seriously, my jaw just dropped, especially seeing the male. And blue eyes too! If only I could get another... *stares at the pictures forlornly*

Maybe I would be able to by the time the babies are ready? Le sigh. A girl could dream.

Good luck though. They really look like a fantastic combination.

Well, you have about 3 months to figure it out!
I'm planning to cull down to about 50-75 if I have anymore than that. But that should leave enough for anyone on here than wants some to get them after I pick out which I want to keep and possibly send to shows (depending on fry quality) or possibly make an F2 from.


thanks inareverie -- I was really lucky to get this girl! I didnt get a clear picture of her but the seller said she was a jaw dropper and I believed him. Hopefully some of the babies will catch her coloration.

Three months? Early graduation present, it is! Well, that is if I'm allowed... xD

If you don't mind me asking so soon, approximately how much per fish are you thinking?

Ehh. It depends on the quality you are looking for, and the quality they end up being. At the moment my thinking is $10-25.

Three months from now would be end of March....

Do you think you'd be shipping to Canada or US only?

They're a super great looking couple though, and either way wanna see how the fry turn out =)
