Arrow Spawn Log: Marble Dragon x Mustard Gas

April 20th, 2012

After conditioning on a diet of bloodworms, brine shrimp, and a home-made protien food my pair are in the spawning tank.

Dad is a marble dragon from HM parents imported from thailand, I don't have photos of his parents but I do have some of his full siblings.


Full brother.

Full Sisters.



Mom is a mustard gas imported from thailand, I have no background on her.



This paring is to both try my hand at raising fry, and to satisfy my curiosity of what they will produce. I hope to spawn my male's all white dragon brother to a dragon sibling next.

9:50 AM

My pair have been in the spawning tank for a few hours now, the female in a glass bowl. So far there's been tons of flaring from both parties. Female is showing breeding bars, but the male has not started to nest yet.

Good luck on the spawn! Sometimes my male wont make a nest until the female is out with him.

Yeah, I may release her before there's a nest if I see all the right signs. Also may try a simulated thunderstorm to help them along. First timers, so.

Thank you!

Female is barred up like crazy, male still flaring. May release soon if things continue to look good.

If the female is swimming head down thats a great sign and it means its time to release her.

Hey I'm not sure if you aware of this but BethsBettas on this forum has the exact same photo of your mom of the spawn. Do you both own a similar female or did you sell the female to her?

That's my account, the email it was connected with got hacked and I shut it down. Posted a thread regarding that just now.

He still seems far more interested in chasing her than starting a nest. Tag time I suppose.
