He is doing fine! I think that one of the plants or something else is ripping his Fons though, he has a few nips at the end, just in case it's tail biting I will raise the temp a bit, minimize the flow, add extra plants, feed a more varied diet with lots of live/frozen foods, and upgrade his tank

Good Luck!!!They're both real pretty fish so if/when it works out it will be awesome to see the results!!!I paticularly like the fact that your male's anal fin isn't crazy long like some you see these days!!!That and the lovely black bits at the ends of all his fins!!!

The DT female was a no go...not sure why either because she was ready and willing and he built the nest like he was supposed to. I have never seen all the signs be good and yet still have no spawn.

I have no idea what the genetics behind this males copper is, so I just decided to go with form over color. This new female has excellent form and color, just not sure how it will combine with the males coloration yet.

Here is the female

Sorry to hear that he and the DT female didn't spawn for you. I think they would have been some lovely fry. Hopefully this girl will work with him.

Just curious how you felt it was a no-go? They took too long? They kept chasing each other? He beat her up? It can take a couple days after you release the female for them to do the business....
