wow, your breeders are amazing :) .The look of your shortfin marble boy is really pretty, so is the butterfly pattern. If you get any fry from that spawn that look like their father and if I have room, I'd really want one. Oh, and good luck ^-^

I released both females and now comes the stressful part lol. The HMPK pair have already been under the nest a few times! The marbles however are just chasing and nipping at this point. :)

Thanks guys!

Jackie, yeah she's very interesting. Since her colors darkened in view of the male, right now she looks like a green/red bicolor with VERY dark and rich colors.

Ok guys so last update on the spawns for tonight. The marbles are just all over the place, but hey it's their first spawn. No bubblenest yet, but no damage on any fish either. The HMPK in the other hand are more "focused". The male's been working on the nest ever since I released him. Right now he has 3 large nips out of his anal and the female has a nip out of her dorsal. I think that the shortfins will spawn early tomorrow morning, while the marbles will spawn either tomorrow afternoon or on Monday.

And we wake up to bubblenests, and surprisingly, no nipped fins from the marbles and no new nips on the HMPKs. I am VERY pleased at how things are going at this point. Everything is very calm for some reason, which is a good thing for me lol. Hope my spawning-time predictions are right. ;P

Good Luck! I'm very interested to see how those MGs turn out as well as what that Red male throws (after all he could possibly be the father of my future grand fishies LOL )

Thanks!
The MG's are getting close while the red marble is still building his nest. I'm actually interested to see what comes out of the marble spawn regarding finnage. The female has excellent fins and form and the male is extremely balanced. I hope this female produces some nice females just like her.

And yes lol, he'll most likely be spawned with the yellow girl if all goes well.
