Thanks, I gave them two big meals already so I will give them one more today and 4 for the rest of the week or until she gets eggy.

Good luck.

Day two of conditioning and all is well, today is pellets and brine shrimp on the menu, also going to let them see each other for the first time today. I hope the male is interested in her as he tends to be shy unless flaring at another male.

I don't think you should breed them...

I think you should send them to me instead. ;)

Heh. The female's postively adorable. I'm sure they'll have some gorgeous fry. Best of luck to you. ^^

xD allow me to ship them to you right now.

No I love my boy too much, I have had him long enough to fall madly in love with his personality. He's a funny guy, I dare say a clown fish always getting himself into trouble.

Can't wait to see their spawn. I am hoping for a nice marble pair from them or breed back to the mother since her color is flawlessly stunning in person.

YAY first introduction of my pair went well. Both were flaring at each other and then my male started dancing for the female. She didn't seem too impressed with him yet since she isn't eggy. I gave them 5 minutes watching each other before separating them and feeding them some more brine shrimp. My boy seems very interested in mating right now since I have been conditioning him for a while now and he's ready to go.

I know by now you must all be annoyed with the updates but lately while introducing them my boy has been dancing for Cali and Cali wants to follow him. He's made a small bubble nest in his tank but she just isn't filling up with enough eggs yet. She has pugged up a little, this is her first time so I was expecting her to fill out more and faster but she's still so slim. Tank is at 80, she eats brine shrimp 3-4 times a day and pellets every now and again. Should I be feeding her a little more? I feed around 4 brine shrimp or 3 pellets 4 times a day.

I would move this or start a spawn log, as this is basically what it is :)

Good luck :)

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

Very nice! Long anal on the male though. Can't see the female.
