Well I've officially begun my first spawn in a couple of years. The fish are conditioned, the tank set up, the tank temp finally right, and the fish seem interested. They saw each other, they are also known breeders (brother and sister halfmoon choclate mustard gas). Anyways the only bump so far was that I had to spoon in some substitute bubble nest to get the male started, not sure what was up with him but he gets it now, nest making like a fish on steroids. Luckily I was smart enough to keep all my supplies so I have about a trillion old jars that are warming up to room temp in anticipation. Hope I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch kinda deal. First food will be mircoworms, there's a local woman who sells already established microworm cultures so I won't have to worry about that. Anyways the male and female are together now shes very much interested and doesn't seem to be too scared of him yet, unfortunately I lost my opportunity for a storm as it was last night. I don't know how many of you agree with the whole pressure change leads to spawning frenzy but ill take all the luck I can get. anyways ill post if I have any success in the coming days. Their clock is ticking only three days until seperation!!
