Well maybe I'll make a small profit but part of the reason I want to breed giant hmpks is because they are SO EXPENSIVE for people in the USA. I want these beautiful fish to be more available financially for people, especially breeders here. I'm just looking to cover my basic costs and then help other breeders.
The other reason I want to breed giant hmpks is because I just LOVE them. They are so fun to watch swim. They're really strong and fast. They look great in my tanks. HMPK is my favorite tail type.
Originally, I wanted to breed giants. Then I figured I should just try to breed regular hmpks before giants. Buttt those breeding pairs died in transit to the USA so I'm back to breeding giants!
If they make it here alive, you can bet on a spawn log with sooo many photos. I have a sorority log going now. I like to help other members with my trials and errors if I can.
