Black smoke/Gunmetal blue spawn

I've been waiting to make sure this spawn would last awhile before I posted anything. My fry are now 1 week old. I've also been waiting to post some pictures I took, but the computer needs a new power supply before I dare do anything more on it. I'll post pictures as soon as I can.
The male is a gunmetal blue with black/brown fins HM, the female is a gunmetal blue almost HM DT.

That is great! I can't to see some pictures. Especially of the pair. What do you mean by "Gunmetal?"

There are so many custom names that most breeders make up that I can't keep up. Which breeder did you get the pair from?

It's a dark blue, but not like royal blue, almost black. As soon as I can load my pictures, it will be easier. I'm doing the best I can to describe what they look like.

I also forgot to mention, the male only made a little bitty bubble nest. Once the eggs hatched, he just spit them to the top of the water! Never saw that before.

It is pretty cool how they just stay up there. The bubbles do provide extra security, but I used to think that they were supposed to stay with a huge nest or they wont be able to stay up there.

Thank you. I will be posting as soon as I can. I've got a really good one of my female. The male won't hold still, so I'll probably post several of him so you can get an idea of what he looks like.

Not such good pictures of the fry. As you can see, he just spit them to the surface! No bubblenest.
