Bi-color HMPK X Orange HM

So here is my next attempt at a spawn. Working on a stable blue body with orange fins. The female is 4 ray and 2ng gen orange. We will see what they produce. Introduced the male to the breeding tank yesterday, and he blew a few bubbles into the nest overnight. Not a lot. About a 50 cent piece area in the bubble wrap. (BTW the bubble wrap works awesome) I introduced the female into the tank inside a breeder trap this morning. I find this works well for me. Lets water flow in the trap. I do believe that some of the breeding hormone escaping helps. Right now the male has become a nesting fool since the female is visible. He is going through all the normal motions you would expect to see. Planning on keeping the female in the breeder trap for 24 hours before release. Wish me luck!

What a beautiful pair. I'm really excited to see how this pans out.

Update: Well the Bi Color male was a real PIMA. When he did finally accept the female, he only wrapped a few times successfully, and once he had about 30 eggs in the nest he chased her away. She tried like crazy to come back and get wrapped again, but he just wouldn't do it. As of right now I only have a few fry out of that. Have another blue and orange male, but he is a bit small right now. May have to wait until I get my orange HMPK to try this female again. Onward and upward as they say. My HMCT's look like they are ready to go again. :)

That's a shame, but maybe a small spawn will be more manageable.

Same thing happened to me with the spawn I'm currently raising up, the dad just didn't want more kids haha.

Good thing is, it'll be more easier on you with less fish from this spawn.

Actually harder to feed. Only got 4 fry. Had to put them in a net breeder so I can feed without overfeeding the whole tank. That and I am having to use up a breeder tank for so little output. Kinda frustrating.
