    Default Sometimes you have to call 'em how you see 'em.

    Breeding pairs! They always want to defy you! I wonder if it is possible to choke a fish out? Mine have decided to develop personalities. (Not really. I am not that insane!) It is more like behaviors, so I have decided to actually put a name to some of my fish.

    The Yellow Diamonds

    Female (on the left)
    Name
    Barracuda (Stick your arm anywhere around her cone whether there are eggs on it or not and draw back a stump)
    Male
    Lazy Fat B$%#*&d (Too lazy to swim all the way up the cone where the female lays her eggs so he only fertilizes the very bottom egg. THE VERY BOTTOM)


    The SS

    Female (R)
    Mr. and Mrs. Abstainer (No need for an explanation on that. They are boycotting the cone. Do you think they know I culled their last spawn and they are holding a grudge?)


    CuriX (F right) and LETi

    Female
    Name: Gidget (Always excitable)
    Male:
    Name: The Voyeur (Though he has had one spawn of 150 fry, he now just cleans the cone and watches the females spawn and then watches over the unfertilized eggs.)


    T-Aqua Red Turq (Old German)

    Male
    Name: Anytime Anyplace Anywhere (as long as it is with you baby)
    Female (in the foreground)
    Name: The Tramp (We have all seen the video of her spawning with two males. And yesterday I switched out the confirmed, but low fry count male with the proven male around 7 AM. She was spawning at 6 PM)


    And this was when I got home last night.


    Do I name my fish? I do now.

    The names well fit the fish. You may have started something here! Glad to see the Watanabe pair spawning again.

    ROFLMAO. I would take offense to that Chad if it weren't also kinda true. I do not guard a cone, but if you touch my Funyons, I will cut you.

    Very funny Mishka. Fish, with attitude!

    Beatiful pairs none the less.
