Yay!:)
New Spawn:
I put the same pair back into the breeding tank since the first spawn was a fail. They spawned yesterday around 9 AM. I left the female floating in her cup at night and wasn't going to release her until the morning, but I guess she was ready and jumped the cup. I have never known her to be a jumper until yesterday x] The Dad's taking care of his spawn as I type. He's frantically trying to collect his eggs. All the bubbles in his nest are starting to pop. Hope this spawn fares better than the last one :D

Fry Take 2

The Fry hatched! Most of the eggs and a lot of the fry are lying on the ground though. Dad looks really tired, but is doing his job well. So excited! So one fry swimming in circles though. This afternoon, his bubble nest split into two and a lot of eggs drifted to the bottom. He spent about an hour picking them up and spitting them back into the nest. Then, they started falling again. X] Poor guy. He's definitely got his work cut out.

lol. Yeah, he was on Aquabid from Somsak :)
Got a new nest of eggs. I don't know why the fry aren't making it to the free swimming stage. I was really looking forward to fry from this pair. This time, I added some java moss, and will add some duckweed in a few days. I took out the flower pot and the plastic plant.

The male decided to move his nest of eggs to new location 2 inches to the right. He had shoved most of his eggs an inch up into his nest, so that they were sitting on top of the nest. When he decided to move them, he had to jump up with his mouth wide open to get to them. It was an amusing sight x]

Beautiful pair. What are you planning to do with the offspring? Or more directly do you think you'll sell any on here?

That's what I'm hoping to do:) I've tried 2 times with this pair. Although they're very nice to each other and bred pretty fast, their fry can't seem to make it to the free-swimming stage. I've changed the breeding set up this time and added only live plants (no more plastic plants) I'm hoping it's not genetic and that it could be due to a mistake on my part.
I'm in the LA area as well:)

That puts you rather close to me :D

I'm sure you'll figure out what's happening with the fry. (Better than I could. I had one accidental breed due to a very determined female and I got all the fry killed XD That was the end of dividers for me.)

Yep!:)
Aww:( at least your not having anymore accidental breedings.
Update:
Most of the fry have hatched and the dad moved the entire nest back to where it was originally.
The babies are so hard to photograph lol

Is the new batch still in the vertical stage?

Lol x]
Yes they are. Hopefully these will make it to the free swimming stage soon. I bumped the temperature up a few degrees and added more live plants this time.
