Multi Spawn - pics!

I had taken a break and now I'm back! First spawn on the agenda is between my multis I just purchased from Karen. LOVE her fish. I tried to include the best pics that I could... they just wouldn't stay still lol ;)

They're doing well so far. Male built a bubble nest (NOT where I placed aids lol); after releasing the female, she went and demolished it; now they're alternating between resting and engaging each other; minor fin damage, but nothing out of the ordinary. No embrace as of yet, but I anticipate something overnight or tomorrow evening. We'll see, I'm a little rusty! I won't get too down if it doesn't happen either since I have a couple back up couples :)


Flirting through the glass - yes, I use a less than professional divider, but it gets the job done!


Freshly released


Hey, the nest is over here!


Drawn over by the male, she started searching for the nest


Found the nest


Flirting and destroying the nest hah



Alright, I'll update later! Enjoy!

I love when the females don't find the nest fitting and destroy it... "You call this a nest? FIX IT!"
I'll be spawning Karen's fish next week so if everything goes well we will be able to exchange breeders

Update: The male built another nest overnight that the female has yet to demolish... Hopefully it means she approves ;) the female's fins have actually healed some too, thus why I love and swear by IAL! No eggs, but behavior is still promising :) Off to pharmacy school now for me!

I too am breeding Karen's fish. I just love how colorful they are. I'm just frustrated because I can't get any good pics of them like you have. Best of luck.

I have eggs!!! Came home from class to see the male and female no longer engaging each other. He wasn't being aggressive though so I wasn't expecting to see anything... searched his nest he built overnight and nope, no eggs. I was a little disheartened, and went to glance underneath the IAL (to see if he had blown any more bubbles there).... to my surprise a good number of eggs were set nicely under the leaf! This is the first time I've had several nests blown and the eggs were put in a completely new one!

Took the female out. She's in very good shape. Very minor fin tears, still brightly-colored and active. She got a very good lunch of bloodworms ;)

Here's one with flash just so you can distinguish between eggs and bubbles.


What a good daddy, tending the nest
