Finally a spawn!!

So I bought 3 males from a breeder and after days of trying and mix matching with females I finally got a compatible pair. My other two males refuse to blow nests :( Luckily though my steel male is finnally blowing a nest and I am looking forward to the results. I spawned my steel HM male to my solid steel HM female.
Here is the male


Here is the half moon female. She has heavy double tail lines so she should pass on some extreme fins to the fry. She is a solid steel female with zero red wash.




I will post a link to the video when it is finished uploading.

Thanks y'all I am super excited too!! I am even setting up a climate controlled fish room in my house. I will have space heaters and heat lamps to allow my breeding program to go all year. I will be posting pics of the progress of the fish room as well.

Thanks so much! Daddy is taking very good care of the spawn. I tried to feed him today but he was not interested. He has really expanded the nest quite a lot and it's a very good thick nest. I am very proud of him .
