my breeding post (keeping everyone updated)

i was asked in a previous post to update on how my breeding was going so im gonna make a journal type thing and try to update regularly.


Male- dr ct, about 5months old monster/marble http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...0/HPIM0391.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...0/HPIM0400.jpg
**he is not flaring in either of these pics, when he flares he is nearly a half-sun

Female- dr ct, marble she is clear with red and clear fins. she is either the same size or SLIGHTLY larger than the male but hardly. i will get some pics of her soon

they are in the breeding tank but seperated right now, male got his styrofoam cup today they are in a 10 gallon tank about 5 inches full and she is in a clear container about 1/2 gal that is hanging from the top, he pretty much ignores her but i think he is starting a new bubblenest.... i destroyed his with the water change today.

in a couple days im putting them together so wish me luck :)


also if i have any extra fry after i distribute to the people who have already claimed some and i have taken my few out, i may be willing to give the rest away if you pay for the shipping, it will be winter so they MUST be overnighted... if you are interested just send a pm my way and i will let you know if i have any extras when the time comes.

lol well this is a quick update, i got nothin to do for a few min so i thought id check in. female is doing the nose down swim and the male is building a bubblenest attached to the outside of the styrofoam cup (isint it supposed to be inside?) hes been using it as a hiding cave... apparently hiding from me cause everything else lookes in from the side not the top.
i will let you know when i put them together.

Would the styrofoam cup work better if you would have let him start his nest first, then put the cup over it to give him the hint that thats what its for? Just an idea.

just released female, some chasing and flaring but no all out fighting/nipping she discovered if she sits really still near the wall on the bottom he leaves her alone.
