orange marble black coppers HMPK (3/12/2014)

so the day has arrived...
female has been released into male enclosure. male is currently building bubblenest.

goal from this spawn is to create fry that look more like the mother.
female:


male (photo from breeder):


as you can see, the male is completely dark, but im not particularly worried because he has the identical layers to the female (orange, black, copper, and white). hopefully will get uniform F1s across the board.

edit: 15 minutes after introduction, she's missing a chunk out of her caudal and dorsal fin. superficial wounds. good thing i cant put her in shows, or i would have been piiiiiiiiiissssssed.

male's dancing away. female's taking her sweet time. the nest is half an inch thick right now. girl's getting torn fins left and right, but not showing any signs of physical stress...

I learned from observation of my pair that clearly they're into BDSM but they don't have a safe word! Lol.

seriously! seems like she's really into the kink. not intimidated by him one bit. creeps up to the bubblenest to check it out, fins fully erect, no submission. lol.

Thanks. I hope they spawn too! I've been away from them for a while so I don't know it they've spawned yet.
