HMxCT take two- Aurora and Shadrach

Shad:


Aurora:


She was a snot and took a little longer than her sister, but she eventually gave in and spawned with him! They finished last night, so I'm expecting babies tomorrow evening.


Found myself a fish-safe tub to use. It's a bit small, but I wanted to see if that would help the fry with feeding. If all goes well, they will go into a bigger tub or small tank at 2 weeks, and upgrade as needed. Shad and Aurora were at it for quite some time. Opal finished within an hour or two, these two were still working after about 4 or 5 hours.


Gigantor lump of eggs O_O And pappa watching after them like a good boy! I think there's even more under the katappa leaf, but I've bothered him enough today to get these couple photos.

Gosh, Shadrach is a ridiculously pretty fish and good father to his fry. I feel silly feeling so proud of him XD

If I can get any photos of the fry in the nest, I'll post them, but it may be difficult because of the tub.

Not two sets of newborns XD But the previous spawn is 16 days old today, so when these are free swimming, the first spawn will be nearly 3 weeks old.

Thanks a bunch. He doesn't have perfect fins, but he's a great father so I'm looking forward to improving on his genetics and temperament through his spawn.

Exclamation Holy cow! Babies!

They JUST started hatching! Holy geez, it's not even been 24 hours since the spawn finished!!

Sorry that it's hard to see, but you can see them wiggling around in the nest as they hatch. Whoa
