Smile Marble HMPK Spawn Log :D

Here is the pair I just started conditioning today, both Marble HMPK. I set up a 15 gallon with live plants and some IAL, tanks heated to 82 degrees and I am looking forward to spawning them in 2 weeks. My camera was messing up so I took a short video of the pair, sorry for bright lighting.

Please let me know what you think and your thoughts on my pair.

Thanks Vicky, I love them both to death!! Would you have time to meet up this weekend for the MW? I have been super busy so I apologize for not being able to meet with you last weekend.

Do you have experience with breeding marbles? What do you think they fry will look like?

Yes. I should be able to meet you this weekend.
I started your culture last night because the first one went bad... a fruit fly got in and resulted in larvae. YUCK!
Also I couldn't find my oatmeal LOL!
So your culture should be ready by the time your fry are old enough to eat them.

Your guys shoud produce very similar fish but without knowing their background it's hard to tell... marbles are a lot of fun!

And a little suggestion... don't wait so long to spawn.
Imports (I'm assuming these are) are notorious for dying suddenly. I REALLY hope this doesn't happen to you but you might want to spawn them just in casse.

I appreciate the culture so much! I do have one going but I don't know how good it actually is but a new fresh batch will be good to have!

Yes it is hard when I don't know their background, all I know is they are Thailand imports that I purchased through the Mn Betta Shop. If I were to get fry that looked like both of the parents I would be very happy :) I love that look of marbled HMPK's.

Also I have a DIY sponge filter but want to just go out and get one from a LFS, can you suggest any local places for me to check out?

I've never been to a LPS in Seattle... I have Petco a couple of blocks down so I shop there.
For sponge filters I buy online from Dr. Foster and Smith... gotta get one myself!

Cool!
If you have a culture already it's very easy to make a fresh batch.
All you need is oatmeal, water and yeast. Make a paste and drop a tiny amount of the old culture... it'll be triving in a couple of weeks.

But I don't mind meeting you and giving you another :)
