Sibling marble spawn

My male Giovanni has finally grown enough to be spawned with his sister The Ice Princess. I am hoping for more of Giovanni's coloration as well as some opaques.

I have them in the spawning tank now. The tank is already stocked with water sprice and a colony of infusoria and a heater. Giovanni has been nest building since yesterday and Ice Princess is just waiting around and sometime she comes over to flirt and inspect his nest. She really is a sweet girl.

This is Giovanni's first time spawning so we shall see how he does as a first time daddy.

I love these kind of colour pairings. Be interesting to see what they produce and whether the cross gives a percentage of fry better than the parents because it is a sibling cross.

This is the best I can get of one girl. The water is stained from bogwood and she wouldn't stay still, or when she did, she was facing the wrong way XD I tried to get a pic while she was in a little ray of sunlight to really show how shiny she is. She has a really shiny sheen to her body and fins that's not showing up well in the photo.
