I probably won't get rid of him simply because I'm attached but it still feels wrong to me. I got him for the purpose of breeding and it's almost heartbreaking to me that his fabulous genetics most likely won't get passed on unless I feel I have enough free time to do a quick spawn this summer.

About the older picture.. keep in mind that it was taken the same day he arrived so he had just been shipped from California to GA... coast to coast. He was understandably pale and a little stressed. A few days later he was much darker and carried his fins more out than in that picture.

Its not too late to breed him. If you have a heater and other materials, you could pull it off. Good luck let us know what you decide to do.

I'm not going to be breeding for a long time, most likely long after my current fish expire. It takes a lot more than a heater and materials to breed and raise fry correctly. It takes hours a day and I don't have hours to spend changing water and preparing foods and measuring growth and taking pictures...... I just don't have the time. I have to work almost full time and go to school full time and maintain a high B average to keep my scholarship... its a wonder I even get myself fed and manage 6 hours of sleep a night most days.
