Ok kinda NEWER update....they are at it again.....I was hoping everyone would like to see this.......the first time was a loss......the SH are breeding again........I am even more hopeful this time...evedently this is a very FAST process.........it only takes 12-14 days to hopefully have "ponies".......in these pics my female is very ready to breed...her little tummy was very swollen...however (even though) there is a definate pair,my other male is after her also....I even saw the chosen male "Head butting" the odd male.....I hadnt witnessed that before....in one of the pics(bad pics) you can actually see the one males pouch is open...ready to recieve eggs(second pic on right)......his pouch is huge today(much larger than last time)....so I am crossing my fins that this time is better

Just wanted to share......the female is the one whos tummy looks kinda like an "L" the males are actually more rounded

I'm sorry the first time didn't take, but you should be VERY PROUD of your fishkeeping skills for them to breed at all! You're obviously taking fabulous care of them!

Awesome pics and fins crossed for a healthy spawn this time!

Please, please, please keep us posted
