I'm breeding her to a yellow dragon HMPK. I have before and still have 1 fry from them. Going to try again once my new fry foods get here (love the other half for buying them).
This is the male:

They'll make some pretty babies for sure. Are you going to make a spawn log?

Definitely. ^_^
I have 1 baby of theirs left from my last attempt. He seemed a little weak from the heat today though. Worries me. Beginning to think that I might have better luck breeding in the cooler months. Or maybe investing in an AC unit for the room. It has a heating unit that keeps the room in the upper 70s and 80s during the colder months.

Don't think I can show the HMPKs, so I'm hoping the rest of my HMs do well. They don't like the heat either. Nor do my adult HM males.

Sounds like the heat is creating a lot of discomfort. I'd say and AC sounds like a good investment. I hope your fishies pull through. And I can't wait to see pictures of the babies, and of the one left over from thier last spawn.

Yeah. My HMPKs don't seem to care one bit if the temp rises. My giant, Uther, loves when it starts to get hotter. My HM boys and fry don't like it. Not one bit. I've got some fans pointed at tanks for now, but am seriously considering the AC unit.

Maybe you could keep the ones that don't like the heat in a cooler room and keep the ones that like or don't mind it in the warmer room. Idk about fish, but when it comes to tarantulas and millipedes, the higher the temp that you can keep them in without stressing them out or causing health problems, the better, because the heat makes them grow faster. Maybe its the same for fish?

Then again, I guess there'd be no need to keep the ones that don't mind the heat in the warmer room if they're already full grown. In fact it will shorten their life spans. Making something grow faster this way is basically just speeding up their lives. So if the heat DOES make fish grow faster, I'd keep all my immatures at a warmer temperature and all of my mature ones at a cooler one. And once my immatures matured I'd acclimate them to cooler water and start keeping them in that.

Ajutside has been between 90-100. My bedroom/fishroom is upstairs and gets pretty hot. My HMPK spawn tank got to 100 before I could get to it while I was sick. I got more fans for tanks after that. I'm thinking the AC unit would be the best investment.
I have a lock on my bedroom/fishroom so no more incidents can happen with my tanks like what happened with my sorority.

We had a heat spike yesterday. I couldn't keep the temps in my tanks down. :/
Temp has gone back to normal again. *knock on wood*
