New pair I got from Aquabid Copper Mustard HMPK Pair

Hehehe this is my first order of fish from anywhere. Can't wait for them to get here.




Tell me what you guys think?$35 for the pair including shipping from Thailand. Then another $40 shipping to me. This is alot of Dollars. DAMN! First time spending this much on two fish.

Nice pair! I'm getting into HMPKs now so if you have a pair of these guys in a few months I'm interested.

I'll try my best to spawn these. Hopefully I would have plenty of fries. They won't get to me until next Wednesday. It doesn't look like the female is full of eggs yet.

Keep her warm, clean and feed a ton of frozen foods and she'll explode with eggs. Who is your transhipper (just curious, I like to hear about different sellers/transhippers from other people).

Korwhord is the seller. Tranship is Julie because i asked all of the other transhipper and some of them didn't reply or they cost more than Julie and another plus is she is located in CA, so it is nice and warm there. (>'.')> my wife thought that I was looking for a *****... KORWHORD

Lol! I've never used any transhipper (but then again I've only imported once recently) except Linda Olson...mainly because I can pick my fish up from her.

Oh yeah you live in Colorado, so damn lucky. Hopefully in the near future a transhiper pops up in WI.

Good luck with your spawn.

The pair is decent.. the female's fins could be better. In the fry your going to want to look for females who's dorsal touches their caudal fin and select them to breed. Your also probably not going to get full HMPK in the first spawn because she's not HMPK (she doesn't have the 180* spread). But if you pick the nicest looking females and breed them back to the father you'll get a higher percentage of HMPK.

Later on you might consider outcrossing to a double tail to help improve the dorsal even more.

Oh nice tips 1 fish I never knew that before hehe. I guess i'll have to do more research on those stuff. So crossing to a double tail would give you some double tail and hmpk if i'm not wrong?
