I set up my dragon halfmoon spawn today :) The males sale name was Fruit Tingle and it managed to stick. Hes probably the only fish I have that has a slightly original name.

The male was an impulse buy, he was listed as a superdelta so was nice and cheap. While I was deciding what to do with him I found this girl who was also a bit cheap so here we are.
They both have quite a few flaws but to be honest this is mainly just a fun spawn. Im curious about the colour these two will produce. Male has a royal blue sheen to his scales so will be interesting to see how that plays out when crossed to a dragon

The pair has been introduced today and male went straight to work to build a nest. The female seems more keen than he does, but we'll see how they go... But at this rate I will likely release the girl tomorrow

Heres the pair





Bubblenest being built


I have my fingers crossed for a peaceful spawn

If this was the 'Fruit Tingle' male Jodi had up for sale a while ago, I was so close to putting a bid in for him.

Hopefully it is a peaceful spawn as I would hate to see those fins ripped to shreds. Look forward to seeing what these two produce.

I released the girl last night becuase they were both ready to go. Checked on them this morning and found spawning fish :-D

They were looking a bit suspicious under the nest

Eggs have hatched!! :-D
Fruity has a short attention span and is easily distracted, but he seems to be keeping his fry alive which is all I need him to do

The female is okay, but man, I love that male you got! Like the "Fruit Tingle" name too lol.

Glad Fruity is taking care of his fry. Honestly few things in a spawning is more frustrating than a bad daddy fish. :mad:

We managed to get velvet so there arent many fry from this spawn (maybe a blessing in disguise after my recent batches of 400...) will probably do a respawn eventually. The babies that survived are eating bbs now and getting bigger

In the meantime heres a few more Fruity pics
