Pineapple Butterfly OHM x Mustard Gas HM

My daddy arrived today! I'm curious as to how my potential pairing stacks up?

Here's dad:



And I have two female siblings as moms: (all these pics are of the same female)





The only concern I have is that the girls are HUGE. Daddy is bigger because of his fins, but I know that the size of the girls could make embracing difficult.

Haha! Here's hoping his manly instincts take care of everything The females are from AB, the male is actually from eBay. Those pics are from the seller. She's partnered with a Thai breeder who sends the fish to her.

Daddy is settling in well to my 6 gal Zen tank, I had to kick my tiny turquoise girl out of there and she's not happy with temporarily being in the fry net in her sister's tank :P But she seriously didn't need all 6 gallons to herself XD

Daddy did have some tail biting going on but I sprang for overnight shipping so he didn't have time to seriously rip himself up. And his color was still good so he should be happy and healthy very soon. I put a fresh IAL in his tank too :)

Yep, this will be my very first spawn if all goes well :) I've been doing lots of research and gathering equipment together, I have several cultures of fry food either already here or on the way plus BBS eggs and a hatchery/decapper. The only thing I'm really waiting on now is the sponge filter for the breeding tank. Then once that is all set up I will start conditioning everyone ^^

I also ave a 20gal Long growout tank planted in substrate, and 120 32oz mason jars for juvenile males. Still need to get some shelving put in for those but I have a little time for that.

Reading, and asking lots of questions seems to be the best way to figure out every detail, that and being sure to plan well ahead!

I will definitely be offering some of the babies here, since people here have been so helpful and I know they'll go to good homes. I may also put some on AB depending on how they turn out :) I know that since this is my first time the surviving spawn might not be terribly numerous, but then again I could end up with hundreds :P

Thanks Mo :) Since my name as a breeder means nothing at this point, I wanted to start out with stock that speaks for itself to give the babies a great chance at finding homes.

Possibly, what are you noticing about it? I'm still learning about form.
