Arrow Spawn Log: Copper Marble CT x CT

Alright, so after conditioning my pair I went on ahead and threw them in the spawning tank last night. I was going to wait a little longer, but they were both doing & eating so well, the female has been eggy since she arrived, and my dad (who also breeds various freshwater fish, and bettas as a child) assured me that it would be alright.

Anyway, so far everything is going amazingly. Put Zira in a clear plastic breeding trap last night, and she barred up nearly the moment she hit the water. Rafiki also is doing good as gold so far, and started working on a nest not even a half hour later. They rested last night, but the moment that light turned on this morning he's back to nesting. I would like to wait until the nest is slightly more sizeable before I release, just to avoid distracting him for a bit longer! My plan is to release in about an hour.


Rafiki




Zira (First two photos before her marbling changed)



In the spawning tank: 10g, loaded with live plants, floraglow lightbulb, 83f temp, IAL, wax paper nest anchor, floating driftwood.

They're spawning as I type! Got some HD video. I'm so nervous! I think I see him spitting them in the nest, but I'm not sure...

This pair is so amazing. Rafiki is so tender with her, not a tear on either one-- both mom and dad are picking up and spitting eggs into the nest. She's dropping in small amounts, so they're still at it! It's so funny watching how frustrated they get when an embrace is wrong.

I know! I giggled when I saw my two go at it. Mom's that help are kinda special, most just eat their eggs. It's so cute to watch them tag team the tank bottom looking for eggs
