HMPK Dragonscale x HMPK Dragonscale Marble

Alright guys, round two on this pair and so far so good. After the male built an impressive nest yesterday they got right to work today and currently he's wrapping the female under the nest. Tried to get some video of it but it's too dark in the bucket and I don't want to disturb them but hopefully soon I'll have some fry swimming about.

It's currently 1:37 Thursday May 2nd 2013 they began spawning. Keep you all updated.

Male: HMPK mustardgase type dragonscale.
Name: Copernicus (Cappy)


Female: HMPK Dragonscale marble
Name: Calypso (Cali)

3:48 and the male seemed to have lost interest in the female and was tending to the nest and chasing her off so I removed her not long after he took a sizable chunk from her tail. I put her in warm clean water with some stress coat and AQ salt. Poor Cali looks exhausted right now and is certainly much thinner than when I put her in.

As of now I am not certain how many eggs I have as it's hard to see and I don't want to disturb the nest but I can see a few eggs. It's all up to Cappy now until they are free swimming, crossing my fingers he does well.

Yup this is my first spawn, got microworms, banana worms, and vinegar eels for the babies but am trying to get some batches of baby brine shrimp going later.

I want to peek and see how many eggs we got in that nest but the nest is under a half cut cup and I am afraid to move it in case the nest falls apart, guess I have to wait for babies to hatch before I can tell how many we got here.

4:39 update, Friday May 3rd 2013

Checked the nest and was able to see 20 eggs out from under the cup so I at least know they are there. My male has moved some of the eggs around and so I am not sure if those eggs are bad or something that he moved them out from the main cluster under the cup or if he is trying to put them someplace with more open air. He keeps tending to his nest and is being such a great father. I'm hopping soon to see fry, so excited to meet them. ^-^
