Daddy from spawn 3 isn't such a good daddy.. Lol. But daddy from spawn two is good so I took a risk and put the eggs from spawn 3 in spawns 2 nest since they were laid within hours of eachother. And it looks like so far, so good, the eggs are hatching.

SPAWN 5
I also got another pair to spawn today. Green HM coming from lines that throw pink x grey/white HM female. They are spawning as I speak

Good call to move the eggs. I know I would do that! The green male is beautiful :)

I feel like I'm freezing at 65 degrees here... I would DIE in Canada, lol..

Seems like I only have about 25 eggs from the green x white spawn. Both are first timers so it doesn't suprise me. I only have about 25 fry aswell from the first spawn. The mother was a first timer so it wouldn't suprise me if there were issues with wrapping. But otherwise I got about 50 from the red spawn and probably about 200 from the blue x MG spawn

I can't believe how many fry I got from the MG female. The first time I bred her she easily layed 300 eggs but I accidentally let the heater off and the eggs never hatched becuase if how cold the water got. But I finally got her to breed again, lol. Also I almost had a pair spawn behind my back. I was conditioning a pair in a divided tank and the female jumped the divider somehow, when I got home she was barred up and the male had a huge nest. I wouldn't be suprised if I had left them in there just a day they would have bred, this is the male That I just took out like 2-3 days ago so I would have let them stay in the tank but I think he tired enough (obviously he doesn't think that!) lol

Here's the sneaky pair that tried to spawn, lol
