I would guess she carries red. I can almost see a light tint of it in her fins under certain lights. I also have a yellow female who is very breeding ready. Hmm...now I'm not sure who would be a better selection!

if you want to keep the yellow/instant gratification,use the yellow girl.

If you plan to breed a f2-f3 and don't mind red in the f1, use whichever one has better finnage/form/body.

I wanted to update on this thread, for those who missed my other one: I ended up breeding my mustard gas male, Neptune, to Rain (the blue/green female). It took them 3 days but they did finally spawn! (first time for both) It was so awkward for the first hour, lol. There are eggs in the nest, I guess I'll find out in another day or so if they've been properly fertilized:) Rain has been removed and is recovering in her own tank. Her fins are really damaged, but she's acting just as chipper as she's always been. Neptune is diligently watching over the eggs. He's been great so far!

Neptune has been a wonderful, dedicated father and has been tending to the nest without rest or food. It has been 5 days now since his last meal and I'm beginning to worry. It took my pair 3 days to breed. I fed the female a little during that time, but Neptune was not interested in eating. I tried feeding him yesterday because he wandered from the nest a few times, but when he showed no interest I promptly removed the food. The babies hatched Saturday night, so they should be free swimming soon. Will Neptune be okay without food for so long?
