"Monster" Marble HMPK

My marble HMPK pair spawned this afternoon :)

I got the pair from Monroe who I believe originally imported the pair from thailand. They were very easy breeders :)

The eggs should hopefully hatch Wednesday. Fingers crossed for a big spawn.

Here's a couple pics I borrowed from Monroe since I don't have any good ones of the pair myself. These pics don't do them justice, they are VERY nice looking fish so I should have a good looking batch of kids here in a few weeks :)

woo hoo! That is great news. I thought that pair was very nice, and I can't wait to see how their fry look.

I'm excited to see what I get. I tried a marble HM spawn before but it was my first time out and I lost all the fry to velvet I think.

I was so happy with how well the pair did. I put them in the spawning tank yesterday morning. The female let HERSELF out of the breeder net thing sometime yesterday evening but since they were being cool I just left them. Then by 12pm today they were spawning.

When I got home tonight they had obviously finished so I got the female out. She has a few nips and tears but nothing major, a week or two in her jar and then she'll be good to go back into the sorority.


Also, this is my FIRST short fin spawn I'm curious to see how they grow/develop compared to longfins.

I just got home. The eggs are bunched up in a nice tight ball. They look pretty good IMO. Big Boy (which is what I've been calling the male) is doing an excellent job caring for them.

It may be a little while longer before they hatch. My heater was heating the tank too hot so I unplugged it. I'd planned to fiddle with it but they spawned before I had the chance and right now I don't want to upset the male. The tank is holding at 78* room temperature so hopefully they hatch in the next 24-48 hours.

I'll try to get some more pictures and upload them. It might not be until friday that I have time to upload them. I'm in class and working and Bella's surgery is this Thursday so I've got a lot on my plate and little time for uploading pics right now.
