Platinum Red Dragon HMPK male and Fancy HMPK female

Tank set up: 5g glass tank with sides covered with paper (I found that this helped the pair to focus on spawning Similar principal to Thai breeding but the advantage is that you can remove the paper to see the eggs/fry after spawning. Its also easier on cleaning).

I also have some live plants, IAL, half polystyrene cup for the nest and plastic wrap to keep the heat and moist inside.

Male (Top) and Female (Bottom)

Thurs 14/11/13: The pair was placed into the spawn tank at the same time.

Friday 15/11/13: The pair spawned in the evening. Around 70-100 eggs.

Sunday 17/11/13: Eggs hatched and dad was busy tending the nest.

Day 3, 19/11/13: Fry started free swimming and dad was taken out. Gave them their first meal of boiled egg/water mixture.

Please note that I took some of the tank water (same temp and PH) to make the egg mixture. In my previous spawn, I took the egg mixture straight from the fridge and added straight into the spawn tank (WRONG MOVE!!!). This killed off pretty much my entire spawn because of the temperature difference.

Day 8, 25/11/13:

I did my first 50% water change and sucking out most of the gunk at the bottom. Most of the fry hang out at top which makes it easier. The water was replaced with fresh water with IAL, using the drip method over night.

Around 70% of the fry are around 4-5mm long and the rest looks like they just hatched.

Can actually see the fry chasing/following BBS and eating them.
