MG Halfmoon Plakats

Okay so currently I have a pair of HMPKs in the spawning tank(Female in jar). This time my set-up is a bit different. I'm spawning in a 16g tub. In the tub is a clutch of java moss, a styrofoam plate, and an IAL. This pair seems a bit on the aggresive side,but hopefully things will go down smoothly. If they spawn, I should expect some longfin STs (Halfmoons), and longfin DTs. There should also be shortfin STs (HMPKs, and PK) and shortfin DT. For color, there should be MGs,multis,MGs with a lot of iridescence, and MGs with black scale outlining(Similar to the pineapple coloring). If they spawn I will be keeping any light colored MGs and any MGs with significant black scale outlining.

Here's the pair....

The female reaches a clean 180* when flared and the male is an OHM.

Gorgeous pair. If you get any that look like the father I definitely want a pair.

Thanks guys! :)

I released the female earlier today, and the male started a nest under the IAL. Maybe they will spawn tomorrow... :)

Wooho! So I am happy and confused....I came home today and saw what I thought were "eggs" falling from the nest. I took a closer look and I'm pretty sure I saw some fry falling and swimming back up too. So these guys might have spawned yesterday and I didn't even notice!

This looks like a small spawn, but I'm still happy. This is my first spawn with fish that are actually mine. So now I have my own pair of proven breds. :)
