Talking HM Multi Marble X HM Pastel Marble Spawn Log

Here it goes...
Fry hatched 3/2/12.
My female was releasing eggs prematurely and many didn't get fertilized so this is a very small spawn. I'm probably going to do another in a couple of weeks with the same pair.
They were bred by Karen McAuley and the male is a class winner. He's the same in my avatar pic, just changed a LOT! Female is not a sibling but related, of course.
I'm hoping to get strong HMs with butterfly pattern... we'll see

Here's the Male:



And the female:

Thank you!
I've been waiting a long time to spawn these that I wanted it to be a huge spawn but it just didn't happen.
This male is not big in tending eggs but I really want a good spawn from him.
I will definitely will be giving them another go and see if I get better results next time.

I'm very happy to see you going with another spawn. Would love to see the results of this spawn. My fry are now 6 days old. Your pictures are very pretty and nice quality. Also the male has really changed since the picture in your avatar.

Thank you so much! This male is my favorite in a very long time but hasn't turned out to be the best father. I would've loved him to keep his red head but knowing Karen's marbles I knew he wouldn't. This girl had a red head so maybe a few of the fry will carry that. I just think is so cute.

Thank you! I'm smitten by this pair. I had been looking for a female with this coloring and couldn't resist when Karen of all people had her! Yes you SHOULD go take pictures and post them for all of us to see!

He is one looker! Great finnage and nice marble pattern. Many people actually DON'T like marbles because of this ever changing gene that is so unpredictable with fry and with the actual fish itself. This is the main reason why I love marbles beside the fact that down the line the gene will eventually go into a nice butterfly pattern. The marble gene was actually founded by a man in prison in the 70s who was trying to cross two butterfly's to get a black butterfly and came up with a bunch of marbles, very interesting if you ask me.

I just bought an adorable HMPK salamander pair and they are oly 2.5 months so they are small and so cute... (that was a bit random)

I guess this red head will be in the fry until they get older like with many marbles that people have. Usually I see a nice marble that was stressed at a LPS and they have an amazing pattern, then when you bring it home, it colors up with something completely different.

I love your bettas, the color and finnage are wonderful. Can't wait to see how the spawn turns out. I, too am glad you will try again in a couple of weeks.
