I have these fish for about two years now, Male Blue Face Wild from John Snook21 and Red Turq from Hans . The female Stendker Red Turq gave me a lot of juvies last year.
So they decide to pair up I have three spawns total in the 150g display , the first one was the largest clutch , eggs turn white around the third day, have two more spawns after that about five days apart each time not a desirable as the clutch tend to be smaller, male tend to get lazy.
So now I move them to their own tank , crossing my fingers . I am almost certain the Blue Face is a male, and want to have more control over the water quality when they spawn again.
Although if not a 100% Heckel pair still if not that usual . wish me luck.
Their colors were amazing specially in the Blue Face , sorry for the pictures quality . I have a video that I will post soon.
