Wow, clearer photos too Les! You are improving every time you post :D I LOVE that shade of yellow (can't see any of that blue irid you said they had last time you posted.) They must look good zipping around your tank!

Hey Jarrod

The blue is only on the anal fin when seen at an angle very hard to capture. Ninty percent of the pics I took didnt show up as much yellow as I wanted but it is there as you can see the only thing I didnt realy capture was the red on the cordels of three males it is just stunning. I have been building new spawning tanks and will post pics when I have them set up, I think they would be ok for Betta as well. I will chose two pairs out of these Panchax and the rest will go into a display tank where the Female Betta and spare Guppy trio's are being kept at the moment.

Cheers

Ok so today I collected five eggs from these guys. this is the first time and I am so excited as i realy like them for there hunter attitude. The only heat for there tank is a heat mat that keeps the temp a couple of degrees ubove what it is ( used for plant prop trays). I would like to have enough for tub spawning this summer.

These guys are producing well now I get lots of eggs 20+ a day if I get the mops out early.

Hi Chi

There are five pairs in this tank. This is why I get so many eggs and this is why I have to get them early or they poach them. They do lay a large egg about the same size as the Blue gularis but they are a robust fish so they can cope with that. They eat like it is going out of fasion they get Blackworm three times a day pluse any left over grindels and BBS.

They seem to work well for me in large numbers like this as the agresion is spread out more evenly and they look great in larger groups. If I had my way I would have about twenty pairs breeding in outside ponds as the larger the numbers the better the genetic stability. but I will try that once I have reard enough fry

Cheers

Les
