So far no love. Rios dorsal fin has be seriously munched on and Ada has a bite out of her caudal fin. I'm about to go out for a little while and if I don't see any eggs or embracing by this evening I'm pulling the plug.
I know, I know, you need to give them time, however I'm on a really strict schedule since the summer is so close to an end. I gave up an extra week to make sure the fish got to be conditioned for 2 weeks even though they probably only needed one.
Rio is an extremely aggressive fish, he's not a good bubblenester, and he wasn't that good of a father. He's got some excellent genes but I need a good breeder and he's not a good breeder. If I don't get a spawn out of him this time I'm retiring him from my breeding program. It's a real shame because he is a prize winning fish.
