I got them They're acclimating now.

Because the box arrived after the mail was sent out to the University it comes up as notice left (but they don't actually leave a notice). I had already called the post office and arranged for them to call me when the box arrived because I knew it wouldn't get picked up for delivery. It would be so much easier if I could just arrange a hold for pick up I'm moving in a month and after that shipping fish is going to be soo much easier.


Anyways they're here and they're gorgeous! The darker blue female actually flared at me when I pulled her out of the box LOL

Haha.. I hope not too evil to spawn If she does turn into a "he" .. well..look how good it turned out for me last time! LOL I don't think she is though.. she's just feisty!

I just checked on them and she's completely colored up, barred up, and flaring at the male, who seems to be enjoying the attention and is flaring back. The other female is just sitting in her cup watching them like "eh.. whatever"... she's so cute and almost an exact twin to the male.

I'm gonna get some pictures here in a bit once I get them into their tanks.

I only had about 3 marble females in that spawn....I was going to keep her for show but because she was so timid I decided to let you use her for breeding....And yes, she is a close match to the male as far as coloration.....

In that case I hope I get a lot of fry from her. I think she definitely needs more time to mature before spawning. The other female acts as though you could throw her in the spawning tank tomorrow and she'd be ready to go. Too bad they're gonna have to wait a couple weeks until school slows down a bit.

Very nice selection. Make sure to post updating picks of your male. I would love to see his progress.

I'm SO in love with your trio!! ... and darn it, there's a pair on AB right now. >_< I can always make room, but I don't know when I could breed them. Maybe next month when I get back to the home fort...

I just LOVE that light colored girl <3

Not until I'm in my new apartment... so at least not until May. I just think that with finals going on I'll just be too preoccupied with school and work to spawn.

When I do I'm thinking of first doing the marble male/female and then recondition the male and use the blue girl. I also want to do another Dan spawn and a spawn with my Blue DT "Bubba".
