Red/Black Dragon Spawn
 
Attempt #1
15.05.18

Both been conditioned for over 2 weeks
With plenty of frozen brine shrimp and blood worms and last couple of days I fed them live blackworms.

Tank temp set to 28degrees or 82F.
Sibling pair around the 5month age.
Tank has been cycled for about 3weeks.
Plants - Elodea, Frogbit, Anubias and Marimo ball.
Indian almond leaf extract added into tank.
Bubble wrap to act as a bubble nest location.

Will be breeding my koi pair in a bucket within the next 2 weeks.

Will keep you guys up to date.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...941d2c58c4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1bd2d62549.jpg

After 40hrs I decided to release the female, both was showing signs of breeding. Once female was released. The chase begins, after an hour the female got destroyed, almost laying on top of the Amazon frogbits but after resting a bit she decided she was ready, so she went under the nest to check it out. After two fail wraps with no eggs dropping, the male decided to chase and bite her again. She is now currently hiding and he continues to build the nest. I wasnt expecting them to spawn right away. But hopefully within the next 24hrs if not, I'll recondition them a bit more.

Good luck! How do you not stress out watching them?

Haha it does stress me out but being patience and giving them time is the best thing we can do. I try to have a look every couple hours besides that it's pretty much all carded around the tank. I'll have to say conditioning is the most important part for breeding. If you skip that part you'll be wasting time also get a lot of fry that either dies off or deformed.

Makes perfect sense to me. And a great sign that breeding is not for me. Stress, and also I only create monstrosities >:)

Can't wait to see how these turn out for you. These two are super lovely!

And the wait is over they finally spawned and the male is moving a lot of the eggs elsewhere !!! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...4396c61d99.jpg

Hooray!!! Here's hoping that only minor culling is necessary :D

Final update for the spawning part.

Female has been taken out due to being chased after the last embrace which dropped no eggs. She is perfectly fine, little bit worn out and ripped fins and scales but she's still very active. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...5159fea225.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...b6d5fbaed7.jpg
