    Stripes and glisten are laying eggs again Smile They are the funniest pair ever. They are plastering the eggs like all over the back of their part of the tank. Will get some updated pics of them and their walls painting with eggs when they are done. Fingers crossed this time I get some babies.

    Try Joe Gargas up near Tampa for ed koi angels he is on Aquabid. Boy those are beauties you have zeke. If they are fighting with any damage they should be separated or someone may get killed.

    Amazingly there has been no fighting with them. They get along swimmingly LOL. Unfortunately they ate the eggs again Sad I think the boys upset them hitting their tank while I was still sleeping at 7 am in the morning lol.

    ya pairs will fight over the eggs, I would think you should split that pair up and see if they will pair off with someone else....

    Well the last 2 stupid guppies ate most of the eggs last night. Sad Not a happy ending for them grrrr. Moved Sterling and Shine to their "own side" and put Stripes and Glisten in the "community" side lol. Needless to say both pairs wish to be back where they once were.

    I got the mairna breeder box finally today and put the plant with remaining egg in it...fingers crossed I get some babies to live.

    are they separate from the parents?

    If so thats kinda normal, it takes them a but to swim, usually parents pick them up and put them back up till they get the swimming thing down.

    ya they do the flop for a hour or 3 then they get a hang of the swimming thing!

    Is there enough circulation in whatever you have them in?

    Well they laid eggs again and and this time they have wigglers!! All by themselves Smile Taking Uno out was key and they seem much happier obviously since they didn't eat their eggs this time. Uno wouldn't butt out and kept making them mad I guess. OOps

    When or if they get the fry to free swimming I will be yanking them and using my awesome breeder box. Now I'm running out of tank space though lol. I have fry from Mocha and Latte, Sterling and Shine, and hopefully Stripes and Glisten.
