Talking Spawn log...take II? {minor pic spam :P }

SO. Trying again, different pair. Well, different male.

Meet Callisto, the DTHM:



Meet Alma the suuupppeeerrrr eggy VT female:



Breeder tank setup:



No worries, I have been conditioning them with high protein diets, I just didn't think to post a log of these two, I'd been sooo focused Jazz and her. Just introduced them today. My tumblr http://www.ncpanthersgurl.tumblr.com has a bit more detailed account of everything going on, a few more pictures, and I'm uploading a video right now. {And if you read my other log "start" I'm very prepared for the spawn. :) }

Anyway, I hope these two do better than she and Jazzy did. He was just bored with her after like 5 minutes. >.<

So they've been together maybe an hour, and I was wondering where Callisto went; he just hadn't been flaring around the jar for about 15 minutes. Went and peeked over the half wall between the kitchen and living room...and found this!



I squealed like a little girl >.< I'm so excited.

EDIT:
It just keeps getting bigger! :D

Can do, I love taking pics. :) Though getting them of the babies will be hard since, as you can see, he put his nest in the back corner of the tank. Anyway here's the nest progress.

Uploading two videos to the above tumblr account right now. First is them chasing, second is just a general. They're doing really well together, I'm so much more thrilled with the way this pairing is going. His bubble nest is smallish, but my god is it thick. She's hiding from him like I was told she would; but has clear vertical bars and no stress striping whatsoever, so I'm just being the supervisor for now. Nothing seems too aggressive, not yet. I think her tail took a hit...as hard as it is to watch them be vicious I know it's just part of the cycle. >.< I'm just making sure it doesn't get out of hand. If I see her taking too much damage I'm fully prepared to take her out if needed.

WOOT! I have eggs! Super happyface. I'm not sure how many, there only looks like a few, but since they're both new to it I'm not surprised. Pics later. :)
