See that is the pair I like better also.... but was thinking try the proven breeding pair since you know they have breed sucessfully before..... all the HM I have tried to breed have been 1st timers..... ( but all my crowntails have been 1st timers and I havent had many problems with them...)

I've never had a spawn not work because of finnage? Are you saying the HM you are attempting to use have too much finnage to spawn?

No sorry I am saying the males and females are conditioned as are all my fish, but once entering the breeding tank (which is set up the same as all my other spawns) the males wont make a nest, or runs from the female and hides from her, or once they actually do spawn the male eats all the eggs.... I am just saying I always have had bad luck with my Halfmoons

Are you doing the spawn dance before every attempt? :p just kidding. But get rid of the bad mojo with the HM. It will come just like all the others!

*Swoons* The marble male really is incredibly stunning--I'm extremely jealous right now lol. Are you pretty set on pairing him with the blue female? I'd be interested in seeing pics of the copper female you were planning on earlier or any other females you'd consider.

Assuming you have a successful spawn, is there a certain amount of time you typically wait before attempting the next one? If so, would you make an exception under certain circumstances?

Since you've had such negative experiences in the past with your attempts to breed HM males, its seems like a successful pairing with one would go a long way as far as giving you more confidence and positive outlook for future HM male pairings, and as cheesy as it sounds, that alone could end up making a real difference. Because of that, part of me wants to say you should go with the proven pair since they're obviously your best bet for a good HM male spawning, regardless of which pair is "better" or more attractive.

Idk, hard call, I can definitely see why you're having a tough time deciding!
