What would that be considered? Giants? Half giants, or something else?

Size of the offspring
If they can manage to produce all 3" plus babies
Then it's a Gaint
Anything smaller then 3" to 2.5 half
Then smaller then that it's regular
Only the short tail
Long fin
Not really sure
The biggest I've seen is 5"

I have a 150 gallon aquarium I will be dividing into 3 sections (probably with acrylic), for 3 seperate batches of fry, so they have plenty of room to grow, and less water changes, plus a seperate 30 gallon. In the process of collecting enough heaters and accessories for each section.

Update:
Daddy is actually doing very well with the nest this time, moving them around, and cleaning them, does not look to be eating them, and I think I was wrong on the amount, there looks to be more, maybe 150-200, he had some on the side of the cup I didnt see originally, but then he moved them all together.

Daddy is very aggressive with his woman though, this is their 3rd time, and she is looking pretty rough, I will probably not spawn her for quite a while because of the beating she has been given the past two months. She is missing quite a few scales, and her fins are pretty split. I couldnt imagine spawning him with one of my regular sized girls, he would probably kill them within a couple of hits. There was quite a few times I started the spawn, then decided to put her back into the hurricane because he was too rough, well too rough for me to watch, but typically that extra day helped him calm down and they started spawning within an hour.

she looks HMPK, her anal fin is small and straight, unlike HMs there anals curve, and the finnage is a bit larger (IMO)

sorry to hear that, you could try again if they don't hatch
i heard of an experiment with the female taking care of the eggs, i read that they survived, and she took care of them but they where a bit weaker :I
