1st spawn Spawn log CT Female and HM male.


This isn't my fish but I can't take any good pictures after an hour so I just googled a purple cambodian female and there ya go! She is a crowntail though. Her caudal obviously is spiked but the color changes from purple to red to a blue/green.

not the male but very similar. The blue on my male isn't as defined and its a bit lighter. The blue "seeps" into the white at several places.
His name is Cambria :) and he's another one of my petco babies!

Right now I am getting my infusoria cultures ready and I am starting to condition by feeding frozen bloodworms twice a day and frozen brineshrimp in the middle of the day. I have conditioned them for a week or so already but plan on waiting another 2 before I let them see each other. I will introduce him into the spawn tank in a couple days. The tank is going to be heavily planted 20 gal with a few fake plants and live plants. I will also have a piece of driftwood with several places for her to hide. I'm going to keep this as the growout tank for the females and I have about 20 mason jars for males. I'm not expecting a huge spawn(its both my first time and their first time but i'm ready for a big spawn).
Wish me luck! any "last" minute tips would be great!

its going to be filled so the water level is really low. It won't have the complete twenty gallons. As I "convert" it to a growout tank, I will slowly add a bit more water everyday.

Due to some personal issues, she didn't go in. I had to take apart the 20 gallon. He is going into a ten gallon planted with mostly live plants a few big rocks and a volcanoe layed on its side that she can go in.
He's going in tonight.
