... its all beat2020's fault!
We got to chatting and the next thing I know I've got two pairs in spawning tanks
The first pair is Bubba, my blue DT.
And one of the new girls from the trio I just got.
I'm not entirely sure I'll get a spawn from them because the female is only like 12 weeks old but she seems responsive so we'll see. She's the perfect size to try Bubba out because he's on the smaller size body wize. Last night when I put them in the tank she showed stress bars but was not acting stressed. This morning she's colorful and barred up and there's a little nest under some frogbit. I forgot to cover both tanks last night so the nests aren't what they should be.
The second pair I originally was going to try out was my DTHMPK male and a cambodian female from the reds I got recently, however they were way too different in size and neither seemed particularly interested. The reds are still young so she's probably just not ready yet.
So, instead I chose Russell, my HM multi BF.
And Venus, my blue/green MG butterfly who I spawned with Dan a few weeks ago.
Both of them seem responsive and there's a nice nest this morning. I had originally wanted to breed Russell with another female but she's totally unresponsive to males it seems.
I'm probably going to release the girls later today or maybe tomorrow.
