I didn't want to jynx myself by posting anything, but I think it's safe now. I've got fry!
This is my second attempt, and it's going great! Renge, a multi-colored crowntail and Mary Jane (MJ), a mostly green (some blue on the fens) crowntail where my ideal pair. I had tried with my double tail, Manson, but he wasn't interested in MJ. Renge, however, is head over fins in love and they where all over eachother within a few hours of releasing MJ from her holding cell (aka a cut down 2 leader).
The fry just hatched today and I've set up BBS which should hatch by morning. But who cares about all that.. pictures!!
Some close ups of the fry hanging on for dear life. Don't worry, Renge is a great father and is doing a wonderful job of tending to his bug eyed bundle.
I'll update as I get more pictures. *does the happy dance*
