Blue marble HMPK.

Thanks to Janan she let me have her HMPK female named trouble. I guess this little girl did not know how to play nice with others. We made a deal and now she is mine.

I was all about breeding big ears and I still will but I really think this pair I have of HMPK is just too nice not to breed. What do you think? Both these fish are getting a lot more blue with age. when they were young they both had a lot more white.

Conditioning starts tomorrow.

the male.


Not flaring


The female.


100Gal Cichlid tank, 80 Gal planted Community, 20Gal planted Betta, 7gal planted Betta, 20gal goldfish grow out. Yeah I like fish.

Thanks guys.

Well the pressure is on. I know I can get fish to spawn that has never been my problem it is raising the fry. I have raised cory cats it was not easy and I lost all but 2 fry. That was 3 years ago I still have the surviving fry. I spawned a few cichlids. Looking back my biggest mistake was in the type of food I used for fry. Also the amount to feed. Then I slaked off with Water changes and used a filter that might have done more damage then good.

I have learned a lot I also have been reading a lot. I really hope I can get it right and raise some betta fish. When I have fry I will be offering them to forum members first.
