Genetics: Marbles will come up with whatever color they darn well choose. There's an article on bettysplendens about it (I'll post the link).

Filter: I didn't use one this most recent time but I did use a gentle bubbler. So whatever you want to do.

Thanks for the link! It makes a lot more sense now, haha. So, just a mixed bunch, huh?

I do have a few airstones, will those work? i guess I will just go as I said before, add the filter when they are all free swimming, and/or a week old. I will add Thai today, so tomorrow maybe they can get down to business haha.

Thanks for your help Mr. V!

Haha, thanks! They are in there now, he is busy building a bubble nest, and she is fat, with stripes. It is so funny, he goes to flare at her, and when she flares back, he does a look, which seems to say "Wha??"

No, I guess not. He seems to be more of a "manly man" haha. Hopefully he will be done with his nest later tonight, so I will let her out before "lights out" time. Thank you so much for all of your help and everything!

@ Lethbridge - I have read that people do that, but I probably won't sleep til at least 2am because I am a night person, so their light is on now haha.

@ dramaqueen - THanks! I will!

She is out now, and he is showing off to her, and trying to get her by the nest. There is some nipping, but nothing that bad, and they seem to alternate who is chasing who. She goes up there on her own, but doesn't get in the "position" to spawn. He also keeps adding to the nest, then shows off to her, and tries to bring her over haha. I guess she isn't ready, but hopefully will be soon!

Some nipping and chasing is normal. Hopefully, it will happen tonight.
