DAY 1 IN SPAWN TANK
Today I set up my spawn tank and released the male around 5pm after acclimating him. I put the female in the spawn tank in her beanie and the male went crazy. He is yet to make any bubble nest but I am hoping he will have one in the morning when I wake up.
Tank- 5 to 6 inches of water. I used 3 gallons of spring water and the rest tap. I conditioned with Prime and also steeped some crushed IAL in boiling water. After it was done I added it to the water for fast release of tannins. I also added 2 more full IAL. For plants I have Hornwort, Java Moss and Frog Bit.
I added a cave for the female and a styrofoam cup for the male.
Fry Foods- Micro worms, vinegar eels, and Golden Pearls.
Here is the female, marble HMPK. She doesn't have the full 180 spread on caudal but I love her dorsal.
This is the male, marble HMPK.
Here is a short video after I put the pair in the tank. Female still in beanie.
