Talking Super Red HMPK Thai Sibling Pair

Well they're here! They're from Thailand and have excellent fins! I'm starting conditioning tomorrow and will for 2 weeks.

Spawning Tank:
10 gallon
50 Watt Heater
One IAL Leaf
Live plants
Cave
Plastic wrap cover

Growouts:
I'll be dividing this spawn into 3 16.5 gallon plastic tubs with heaters and a few plastic plants.

Spawning pair:

Male (Fireball):

Female (Cherry, after my red VT female who recently passed away )

*I've wanted Red HMPKs since I came into the hobby. I'm so happy right now!!!

Fireball (and Cherry O.o) began making nests!! I set up the tank and added 2 1/2 almond leaves and the styro cup and all. They're eating frozen bloodworms and getting siphoned every other day (they're in 3 gallon tubs).

Ok I added 4 almond leaves to the tank. I decided to divide the spawning tank and introduce the pair. Once the male has a nice nest I'll release the female.

I released the pair (on their own sides of the divider). Now we wait for them to be ready so I can pull the divider.

Here's the spawning tank:

He's chilling under the cup! YES! Sorry...hehe. Usually my males sit under the cup for awhile and then get to nest building.

So awhile back I found some vids on youtube and found out the uploader lives in Denver. I'm not sure if he's still breeding but I saw his aquabid page and it looks like he bought his red HMPKs from Chaba (breeder of my fish).

Here's his spawn log:

Three weeks old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9cPz...eature=related

Four weeks old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0eJM...eature=related

5 weeks old:

8 week old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBCc4...eature=related

9 weeks old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBjDi...eature=related

10 week old VS 7 month old large yellow dragon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh3fM...eature=related

12 week old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5WIW...eature=related

12-13 week old breeding back to mom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m905J...eature=related

Just thought I'd give you guys an idea of how mine will look (since mine are relatives of the fish in the vids).
