Ct x CT Second Trial!

So, I'll post since there are eggs! I was unsure, since the male was guarding the nest... But still flirting? The female is still curious and trying to get back to the nest.

There are two eggs on the bottom of the tub (tub instead of tank this time, as she gets VERY distracted). That was yesterday... And within 8-10 hours they spawned. And they are probably going to go for a second round by the looks of it (female head down, male still dancing).

Interesting - physically she looks "drained". But she's still trying to get to the nest?
I guess it's how the males behave. If he isn't aggressive/vicious she might hang around the nest longer than usual.

Those are old pictures Don't have any now. Funny thing is she seems to give a lot of eggs... I removed her, since he was more interested in tending to the nest. Plus... Must've been tiring for both. She was also hiding on the other side of the tub, waiting for me to feed her I feel she may be a proficient breeder.

Nice fish! I swear I saw her at big Al's? I took the blue one with orange fins! What do you do for your first feeding?

The babies, of course. Infusoria?

I don't make infusoria. It is a pain. If I have live plants in the spawn tank, it naturally makes infusoria and daphnia, which is usually good for a day. After that it's brine shrimp.

They hatched!! Peaches as of last night is back in her 5 gallon, and doesn't even look like she is tired. Double'O'Splenden is actually a good dad... That's the second good dad I have gotten in a LONG time.
