I've got everything ready so I think this weekend I'll be doing some spawns. I'm going to be doing two again but will probably mix the fry later on instead of keeping two separate spawning and growout tanks.
This time I'll be using 2 20 quart plastic bins as my spawning tanks. They're about the size of 5 gallon tanks. 50w heaters, no light (besides room light), java moss, and IAL.
One pair will be my Blue MG/Melano geno pair
This pair bred by Martinismommy (Karen MacAuely). They should produce Mustard Gas, Melano, and Multicolors.
I haven't decided who the second pair will be just yet. I'm either going to do Prince (fish in my avatar) with Nancy (multicolor HM) or Bowie (new Multicolor BF) with Lilly (pastel HM from multicolor lines). Either pair will produce multicolors and butterflies, however the second pair has higher quality fins.
The pairs should be going in the tanks tomorrow night so hopefully we'll have spawns by next week :)
