Marble Babies

Here's some pics of the new marble trio I got from Martinismommy yesterday.

Little boy started on a nest in his cup while I was acclimating him yesterday
















Marble girly... such a sweetie




Blue girl.. she's is FEISTY!!









I'm hoping to start breeding them around mid-late May. I would try earlier but I'll be moving soon and there's finals coming up so I'll be too busy in the coming weeks.

That's the perfect word to describe her! Dainty. She's just so mellow and sweet. While the other female is flaring and barring up and damn near jumped out of her cup she got so excited the marble girl was just sitting in her cup like "yeah.. I'm better than that :p"

Me too. I think the male is beginning to marble. When I look at him with the flashlight you can see some of the white parts taking on a bluish hue.. almost like a bruise. This is what happened to my last marble, Rio. I hated the in between marbling because he just looked like a swimming bruise LOL... but the end result was gorgeous..

Which ones? I haven't been on AB in a couple days... probably a good thing if she's posted more fish!

The marble babies are doing great. The two girls were put in with my 11 week old reds (since they're roughly the same size and I was afraid my big girls would hurt them)... I was surprised how easily they integrated into their little sorority. 5 of them in a 5 gallon is a little tight but it'll have to make due for a couple weeks. Everyone is happy though.

The male is gorgeous, I can't wait for him to begin filling out and gaining more color (or losing it should he choose to do so LOL).

Rio was a gorgeous fish </3 unfortunately he was a horrible breeder/father. I lost him last fall when some sort of bug wiped out half my fish :( He was the 1st halfmoon I ever bought.
