Talking Red VT #2 :)

Ok so yesterday I took out my Red VT pair and put them in medicated jars (salt, methylene blue, and ampicillin). Now the female is trying to get to the male and he's started a nest. I'll condition them for a week like this and hopefully put them in the tank Friday.

Lol after 4 days my patience ran out lol. Anyway they're showing signs of readiness. They're fins have grown back (my water conditioner speeds up this process) and he's building a nest. A couple more water changes and some freeze dried and frozen bloodworms and they should be good.

Ok just a little more than a day to go :)

I'm cleaning out the tank tomorrow and putting them in (not together together seperated). And then Friday night release them.
