Finally! Multicolor HM X MG <ultiicolor HM

Well after 4 failed attempts , I finally got a spawn. The female has been removed from the tank and the male is currently tending the nest.

The breeders were bred by Karen Mac Auley. After she found out I was having trouble getting a spawn, she let me borrow a pair of proven breds and after being in the tank for about 36 hours they have spawned. When I came home from school to check on them, they were embracing. I saw about 5 embraces (But there could have been more that I didn't see) and from these about 10-20 eggs were dropped per embrace.

I'll get pictures of the breeders later,but I'll give you guys a little description. The male is a grand champion multicolor (blue/red/white/black). He has excellent fins and a very deep color. He is DT geno.The female is a nice little HM.She is a multicolor (blue/yellow/black) MG. She has nice fins and is also DT geno.

From this spawn I should expect DT's and ST's(HM,DeT,SDet, and they have also produced PK.) For color I should mainly get MG's and multicolors.

When the fry are free swimming, they'll eat infusoria for about a week. After that I'm going to feed vinegar eels. Since I'm going to try to power grow them, after the VE, I'm going to be switching to frozen and dry foods.

From this spawn I'm going to be keeping any light colored MG's and blue/red/white HM's or DT. If I get any PK I might keep some of them too.Some will be for breeding and others for showing. The deal I made with Karen is that I have to give her 2 ST pairs from this spawn. The rest I am selling on here and/or Aquabid.

Yeah I've seen some of her recent fish. Plus she also has some nice 8-10 weeks olds growing out ;) plus she just had two recent spawns.

About the outcross, these fish are an F6 generation so I will need one soon. If you have some nice fish by time I need one, I might be contacting you. :)

Well these guys are older ( The male's 1 year and two months old,and still breeding!) so they could even be grandfathers of her fish XD. I just sent Karen an email asking her if this pair is related to my other fish I have from her.

Well the male has been happily tending the nest over the hours. He now re-arranged the eggs into one big clutch.
Here are a few pics of the pair.



Tending his nest.
