F3 Copper red hmpk x sdpk

Spawned my copper red hmpk with his sister today. They were pretty keen on each other and got to work 15 minutes after release. Hes quite the gentleman only giving her a tiny tear on her anal

The male has nice 4 ray branching and straight edges, however he has the characteristic pointy dorsal of almost all the fish in this line which I hate.
This guy has ventrals that are too long and his toplines not my favourite but I want to fix the straight tail edges and spread at the moment.



His sister has nice straight edges but cant reach 180
You can kinda get a glimpse of her in the last photo but Ill take a better one once shes recovered a bit.

Thanks I was real surprised, usually I have to wait a day or 2. I had less things for her to hide in that tank so maybe that had something to do with it

Lol. I was proud of my girl when she gave me a spawn on day two. I thing having hiding spots but not to many is good if you want a quicker spawn...

2 days is real good. Yeah I agree, too little and shell get ripped to shreds, too much and he wont find her. I expected him to abuse her since he puts on a huge show when flaring

How old are the pair? I might consider spawning my f2 but they're 3 months old and still quite small (especially the females).

Btw he looks amazing... and good luck with the spawn.

Thanks
These are roughly 4.5 months. Some of their siblings are still very tiny though
