Nice pair!
What are your goals for this spawn? For color, finnage, etc?

I'm hoping to start a marble halfmoon line. I'd like to get a fish with a white base with blue, red, black, and eventually yellow marbling on it. I'm also hoping to get fish with the father's excellent finnage and form. I'm really liking the mother's dorsal and caudle fins. She's an 8-ray female (sort of rare) so I may also expect some OHM's. I should get some nice full fins on the babies.

The father marbles quite fast and is not a tail biter (which IMO would qualify a fish unworthy to breed). He's not as good a father as I would have hoped but I'm hoping this second spawn will go better than his first and maybe he will have learned enough to get right down to business.

Hopefully he'll do better now that he's an experienced stud! lol

I think he will. He isn't much of a nest builder in general and his last nest left something to be desired, he also wasn't as attentive as I would have liked. If he does the same thing with this spawn I might retire him from breeding.

I really hope this breeding turns out well for you. Marbles are fascinating and frustrating. I wish there was a way to press pause once they reach a pattern and or color you like.

Do you think blue will be the dominating color with this pair?

I'm not sure. Since the female is has red it's very possible that I'll get mostly reds. Since I got this girly from a transshipper and not the breeder hisself I don't know much of her genetic background.

It will be interesting to see what turns out. I'm just hoping for a nice healthy spawn with lots of Marbles and very nice fins.

I'm setting up the spawning tank tomorrow. I'll update with pictures. I'm probably going to release Jane on Monday or Tuesday unless things seem to be going well sooner.
