Royal x Steel

Well I currently have a royal/steel pair in the spawning tank. Set up is the same as my last spawn; 2g tub,java moss,and IAL. I plan to move the fry either to a 5g tub or 13g tub at 1 week old depending on how I have. Here's the pair...

I should get blues(royal and maybe some steel),greens,multis,butterflies,and marbles out of this spawn.I really like this pair. They have great finnage even at such a young age and they both have one of my favorite traits, which is a white streak in the anal. I put the pair in the spawning tank this morning and they've been chasing and nipping all day. Hopefully they'll be a nest by tomorrow and I'll have a spawn by Tuesday.

Thanks. :)

About the melano,I don't think so...This pair came from a blue import, multi cross.

Haha.. I actually just bid on this pretty boy http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1302541806. I really love his grizzly look. Also asked about a lady friend for him.

I'm so jealous you actually get to see them in person :-p. I'm pretty sure the grizzly boy is one she posted pictures of a while ago.. I remember because he looks similar to the tie-dye boy I wanted but didn't get. I really like his form... he's built like a brick house.

BTW.. how are my kids doing? The one female I kept is growing like a weed and I even saw her bar up yesterday when she saw one of my males.

OK.. I'll quit spamming so we can get back to the spawn in progress LOL

Your kids are doing great! They've certainly grown since they got here...

About the spawn, I just came back from putting the female back in the water. This is the second times she's jumped and landed on top of the IAL lol.

I'm glad :)

The same thing happened with my last spawn attempt. The female kept landing on the IAL. I'd leave her there for a while but then I'd get scared she was going to get too dry so I dipped her back in.

Congrats! I was just wondering how it was going. Maybe the blue girl needs a little time to grow up. I'm glad you got a spawn from the red girl though.. you haven't had one with her yet right?

I'm probably going to wait a while to spawn my guys from this spawn. I want to make sure they're good and ready.
