This was my male plakat bossie about two weeks ago:
I introduced him to a female veil tail bella, he was about three times her size.
I provided plenty of coverage fearing she would need cover from him, but when i checked on them the next morning i found him like this (note this pic is two weeks after healing and medicating)..
Ive still be treating him with medications and he as spunky as ever, but ive placed them in a devided four gallon long and shallow breeding setup. Ive placed the male plakat on the right side with the heater and air pump to keep the water circulating, however on the other side the female is now floating in a cup (with a lid lol) with my male veil tail casper (pic of below). I have their side heavily planted and will see if he builds a nest.. but what do you think the babies would look like if i breed these two vail tails.. I couldnt get a good pic of casper but he was a walmart rescue but he is stunning!
and this is my buddy preston.. another walmart rescue..
