I have a few nice pairs all conditioned to breed but am at a loss of which pair to pick next. I have to mention Halfmoons are my nemesis. I seem to have a hard time getting them to spawn and if they do all my dads have eaten been egg eaters. Crowntails have been easy for me and I just had my 1st attempt at HMPK go like clockwork. The one male I despreatly want to spawn is a HM Sky a white and blue marble (in my photo album) will not make a nest and has run from the female when put in the breeding tank with that them.
So With all that being said let me introduce the pairs up for debate:
I have a proven breeding pair of imports, that no longer resemble their purchase photos They were so much better looking in the breeder photo but I have had so many fish change colors that Im not saying its not them just stating wish they still looked the the original photo. They are both a minty greenish and peachy orange maybe a bit of a boring predicable breed ... Siamimbellis is a great breeder and a lot of his lines breed true ( sorry fins are still a bit nipped from their 1st spawn over a month ago with the other breeder). I will have pics of what they looked from the breeder Siamimbellis to the 1st breeder and then what they looked like tonight I have had them a month and they may have changed slightly since I have had them but not drastically
This is the other pair I picked: A white and copper marble HM that has changed since I have had him I will also show his pics from when he arrived and then pics taken tonight. His new pics show his white is being eaten by a green copper on his body. The female a blue was I selected because she is very eggy (and I dont want her to get egg bound) from her 1st attempt at breeding with Sky the above named HM. She and has been showing breeding stripes on her own. She also has fin nips from the 1st attempt and from the sorority tank she was being picked on so she was pulled about 3 weeks ago so her fins dont look as nice I will include a before photo of her as well as one taken tonight. I was thinking of pairing him with my copper dragon HM female but because big blue girl looks like shes going to burst I thought maybe she needed some relief.....
I also have white a pair but that is kinda borning I looking for different not something you see a lot so I didnt bother to take photos.
So Let me hear your thoughts but dont get too excited since I have a crappy track record with Halfmoons.
