yeah, the male is the red/white/blue guy in my avvie.
color is a bit off but here's pretty much how the female usually looks
here she is all barred up. her body turned a much darker blue than it usually is and you couldn't really see her cute little spots anymore
and yeah, she was a fiesty little girl, lol. he was ready to go pretty much right away even without much of a nest, but she took a bit of convincing before she'd submit to him. it was around 24 hours from when I first put them in the tank until spawning started. a bit of a change from the 5 days it took my last pair to figure it out, lol
