HMPK Dragon pair, Take 2.

So after my previous failed spawn with this pair, I am reworking my set up.
I am keeping the same tank, and most of the same set up.
I am going to keep 50% of the same water, going to clean the bottom of the tank up more, and replace 50% of the water.
I am going to condition my pair for about another week or so. The female still has some rips in her fins but other than that she is doing just great. The male is just fine, but I will continue to condition him back up to full strength and ready to go again.

The other changes I am making is I am getting rid of the hornwort in the tank. I decided it was too hard to see the pair, and see what is going on in the tank. I will be stocking the tank with a sword plant, aluminum plant, and water wisteria. That way I can pretty much everything.
I do have some Xmas moss and a moss ball in the tank as well.

So here we go, take two is under way.


The Female



The male



The pair

Those plants are gonna have a ton of infrusia or what ever it is called, for the fry to eat. I like the males main color.

I wish I coulld breed a pair sometime, I just need the room and money.

Hmm interesting. I will have to wait and see that will be really interesting to find out.
Though right now I am dealing with a set back.
My male as of today has become lethargic and not fully interested in food. he is just laying around. So I will be doing a 100% water change and adding AQ salt and IAL to see if I can head off what ever is happening.

Well I think I am going to lose Quetzalcoatl. He is being very lethargic, looking like he is gulping, and is starting to lay on his side. He was fine yesterday, and suddenly this today. There is a very good chance he will be dead before I go to bed, or by morning.
I can only hope I am wrong and that this will pass.
The female is just fine.

Agree with curly. The female has too long of anal fin. They probably come from a mix tail type spawn (very good fins to be expected).

Sorry about your boy though :/

Ah I see. Well hopefully I will have the chance to find see what type of fins I can get. Luckily she is doing beyond wonderful and is actually very flirtatious with other males now.
As for the male I hope he pulls threw, if not then I will except his loss, and be forced to move on.
I will breed her with a different male at some point again.
For now I will be concentrate and trying to get him healthy.
