More than likely. Just make sure you know what you're getting into by breeding. Up to 200 fry that need lots of care...but hey, at least you have this site if you need anything.

Here's 2 more pics of the boy. He's got some blue iridescence on him. If I'm not looking to go straight to show quality in this first spawn but to improve later in is this ok?

My bad. They are closer in lenght then I thought. Maybe only like a cm or less. Ok now would it be better in your opinion s to breed her with the red boy or her marble brother banana. I will post a pic of him.

I don't think she is a marble, but she carries the gene. Your boy has nice finnage and color (work the blue irid out later). Where did you get him? It's up to you who you breed.

I've seen banana. Personally I would breed the red one to your red girl. You are bound to get a couple marbles from that. How did his fins get damaged?

Honestly I don't know. CJ said he's been growing like that but I highly doubt it's natural vs damage. It looks like it might have been fin rot. The pic is back as you can't see his full fin.

We have al ready critiqued banana on another thread. It's completely up to you. We can't decide for you, it depends on what you want in fry. I have to say that I highly doubt he had fin rot. CJ keeps his fish in remarkably clean conditions and when I went, all were 100% healthy.

That's what I find hard to believe. Well like you said about the critique on banana, if what you said turns out to be true then a spawn with him would turn out to be a complete waste of time. I think I will make an attemp at breeding her to the red male. Would it be ok if used my 20 as my breeding tank opposed to my 10. That way I don't need to transfer fry till later? I'm going to try and get my breeding tank setup. And leave the male in it for a week and condition him in there.

Or do I need to condition now? I've only been feeding pellets the last month I've had them but the female is pretty plump right now, or should I start to condition this week with my blood worms?
