Sure is. He's just exploring his section of the tank. I added a air stone to get a bit of circulation going at the surface since I had to take the female out and put a male in her spot so I decided to turn the HOB off. He is being lazy right now. Hiding in the corners or just relaxing on the bottom. Hopefully he'll get more active within the next hour.

When i move them from a tank to a photo jar often fish lose color and get a baby horizontal stripe back too.
New enviroments can freak them out.

When I first got romeo, his colours were way lighter than they are now. He doesn't seem to lose colour during water changes anymore,which is pretty cool Imo.

Yup he livened up a bit. With his female beside him and then I added a styrofoam cup if I feels like building a nest. If I does then ill know he's probably ready for breeding. He is giving the female some wicked v lines.

Hey CJ do you happen to have any pictures of Archie in full spread. I'd really like to see what he looks like all flared up with that impressive dorsal you talk about and all the branching

Here is the schedule. Im setting up a 8 way divided 200g growout in my garage it should be up and cycled by May 1 just in time for a crap load of lil bettas.

1. Chuck Norris (marble) x Big Mary (Super Red)
2. Smokey (marble) x Comet
3. Finnigan (cello)x Sushi (piebald sibling)
4. Leroy x Venus
5. Superman x Storm (marble daughter)
6. Phantom Menace x Emma
7. Jerome x Sweetpea (marble sibling)
8. ??? x Star (marble) F


This is the end of this spawn log. Its been a blast and Im super happy with how it turned out. 68 of 71 hatched eggs made it. Turned out almost 50-50 male female split lol. maybe? Also adding a nice imported male from a world class breeder yes expensive to the 8th and final spot of the experiment. Im regrouping and getting ready for it and you will see less of me here for awhile as Ive know how much work and careful planning I have in front of me. You might still see some pop up at aquabid and my website that will be getting some work put into it as well. When I have some real spawn news on this project I will post pics and make a log.

Thanks Everybody!

CJ
