Giant red HMPK + Giant multicolor PK spawn log

Well after 2 tries with this male's sibling i finally gave up and put my other female in. Here's the father:



Bad picture of the mother:

Mostly she's black with dark red and blue on her fins.

have not seen her drop eggs yet, and the bubble nest they've destroyed and haven't really rebuilt because they won't stop spawning.



Caught them this morning after they must've just stopped. I thought my girl was dead because she was just floating under the cup on her side.

Hopefully i'll have some eggs soon.

congrats vog am happy your fish finally spawned pretty parents, when you said black body and blue/red fins something like this?:

if so she is a wild type bi-color did you get the fish from AB?

no i got her from a grocery store, she was in a tank with 3 or so males and 8-10 females that all all looked related. if you look up my post "help me pick my breeders" you can see a photo of the male i got with her.

At this point i'm hoping he doesn't eat ALL the eggs but it looks as if that's what he's going to do. I threw some pellets in by the cup and he eats the eggs by where they sank and ignores the pellets.

I had a male that got upset when something even slightly went by the tank (vibrations too). I wrapped the tank in paper so he couldnt see me. Most of the time they hold the eggs in their mouth and then gulp some air and spit them into the nest. If he does eat them they might be sterile or have fungus on them. But I have learned there are always more eggs then you see. lol.

Creat is right, wait a few days, you might still have wigglers by then.

betta lover, when i first read that it wasn't showing my the picture. Very much like that. In fact, that looks almost identical to her brother. Big fish tho. they are close to 4".

Some eggs made it to the nest!

And he's still trying to lure her back to the nest but i think she's had enough. I'd get pictures but i put the cup in a very unfortunate spot thinking he wouldn't use the cup (i had bubble wrap in there like Betty says to).


Now the bottom's pretty dirty from the overactive snail, and that i took little over a week to get my spawn... when should i clean? Should i try and get one in before they're free swimming, or wait?

YAY eggs! I wait till fry are swimming horizontal and daddies out to do a water change. I do it with fish net stocking over the siphon and I get the big chunks out with a pipet.
