Blue marble DT x Blue grizzle HMPK

Male is from petco, female is from 3Dbetta on aquabid. Male has a short but destructive tail biting episode that was quickly fixed (filter output was too strong), which is why his tail is such a mess. His form is not too bat, though. The female is awesome and has great form. Goal for this spawn is to get nice looking marbles and grizzled, on my way to HMPKDT.


Female. Her spread has gotten much better as she got older.

Nuzzling/flirting with the male

Wrapping

Female, stunned from the wrap

Female picking up eggs (four dots beside her left eye)

Male before he marbled like crazy.

The male was a bad daddy and ate most of the eggs, but I pulled him out and still have a few fry. I like small spawns though, so no big deal.

This will be a fun spawn to see what the fry you get look like.

Thanks guys .

I would have preferred if the male didn't compleatly change on me, but the genes are all there, so hopefully I get some that look like the male in the last pic.

By tails do you mean tails in the nest or actual tails on the fry? Cause the're all free swimming now. Some even have a bit of blue iridescence if I shine a flashlight on them.

I've started dripping 2g/day of water into the tank... When it gets full I start doing 50%+ water changes every day. This batch should have no problems growing since there are so few of them.

That female is stunning! I wish we lived in the same country, I'd totally want to buy one or two from you in the future. Though I do go to Ontario every year to two years. :p

That's the beauty of marbles. You never know what you're going to get.
Tails in the nest but as they're free swimming they won't be in the nest now LOL.

Mom passed today. Went out to dinner with my family and came home to her dead on the bottom of her cup. That was a shock as she was perfectly healthy and swimming around, content as can be, right before I left. She was my favorite and I'm pretty upset about it. I'll take her in tomorrow and do a necropsy but I doubt it will be conclusive, though if it is I will report the results to all of you.

Good thing is that I have her offspring.
