Smile Breeding Pearl and Merlin.

Okay so I'm not breeding them yet, but I'm starting the thread so it's here and I can post little updates. I've been conditioning them for almost a week now and things seem to be going well. They're kinda close to each other, both in separate jars. I've been feeding them blood worms and pellets 2-4 times a day. Merlin is happy and building a bubble nest and Pearl has a nice belly getting full of eggs. So things are looking much better than last time. I don't know if I'm going to condition for a full two weeks or not. Opinions? I don't want to mess up this time. I'm going to have a jar with water and meds set aside for Pearl in case anything goes wrong and I have to take her out. Or even if they spawn successfully I'll still put her in some meds for a few days before putting her in a tank. I'm starting to get very excited again because I have such an awesome pair. I can't get over how beautiful Pearl is, especially since she has that Metallic about her.
Anywho, I'll keep everyone updated. =D

Yeah I know. I'm so scared that these fry are going to be super beautiful and I won't want to sell any lol. I'm thinking of starting a site, and trying to come up with prices.
