My first Pair

Finally got a female for my Cappy boy and will post pictures of the pair soon. Copernicus is a mustard gas type dragon scale halfmoon plakat male and his new lady who I picked up today is a mg type marble hmpk female named Calypso. Pictures to come soon, conditioning starts for her tomorrow. First some pellets and brine shrimp then the next day pellets and blood worms. Also have mysois shrimp and a little beef heart on the menue. Whole room is set at 84 degrees at the moment and spawning tank has been sitting for a week. Adding live plants to it soon.

Thank you guys, should keep you updated on them. Right now I am conditioning my pair. It's her first day conditioning and I have been feeding blood worms and brine shrimp.

For best results on conditioning should I feed three or four times a day? Tomorrow is her first day spending 10 minutes seeing the male as well.

Depends on how much you feed per serving. Generally smaller multiple meals is good - easier to digest and trick them into thinking there is plenty of food. I would go with 4 decent sized meals a day.
