I'm not sure, cause I don't know how many of the fins will be desirable...i guess i'll see if anyone wants them. I have a good LFS that would probably take the ones I don't want/can't sell

Sounds very good and interesting to see the results of this spawn. How are the eggs or fry if they are not eggs anymore.

I really am interested in this spawn out of all of the spawns on this site because your male is really unique in color and form. And if its a VT female i would really like to see how the fry's color comes out. Can you get a picture of the female alone in her tank?

here's the female:

You can see her colors well in that pic
Ok so its been about 24 hours and no tails yet, but the eggs are definitely still there and the male is still doing his fatherly duties! Tomorrow morning is when I will see tails and some free swimmers!

Also, it's hard to tell in the pics, but both mom and dad have a little bit of red in their fins, so I might get some random red babies!

ADD: Here is another pic of the female, you can see the red in her

The female is the same color as the male's color too. So you will have very pretty VT's and Delta's.

Well if they have hatched, then they should be free swimming by tomorrow at this time or just a bit later, depending on how strong the fry are.

Do you still have the male in the tank with the fry?

They started hatching a few hours before i posted that, and i have a friend sleeping over, so sometime late tonight they should be free swimming and i actually will be awake to remove the male. As of right now he's still in there, being a good daddy and catching all the falling fry

I suggest leaving the male in the tank for at least another day because the longer the male is in the tank the better. Also if you wait at least 2 days more, you will know for sure that they are ALL free swimming fry. Then you could start feeding the day after you take him out of the tank.
