    I took Adamís advice and added a large sword to the right side of the tank. I think it looks good. Also managed to get everyone in the pic after feeding them some live brine.

    Breaking in the new furniture already! He(?) needs to dump the new gal(?) though and go back to the other HB. Not a good pairing imo.

    Pat doesn't care. She doesn't want breed. The eggs already look white in the pic but if they are fertile the other fish will eat them if they make it to free swimming.

    Personally, it a cross that I would like to work with. I wanted to make blue half black pearlscales. It would have been quite a project and taken a lot of crossing sibling to sibling and keeping my fingers crossed. The German blue blusher that Patty is a pearlscale. It's just hard to see except on it's shiny parts. With enough work, and time, and tank space she could make stripeless blue half black pearlscales. If she got that she would have the world beating a path to her door.

    Patty, IME pairs rarely wife swap, especially with a fish of a different strain. I think this is way cool.

    It’s actually the female HB and male GB pearlscale. He is a rookie though and totally missed the eggs. The male HB is sulking in the front corner of the tank.

    Really? I thought it was weird, but didn’t know it was rare. The stripeless blue half black pearscales would be something. I need to buy a lottery ticket this weekend so I can dream of my own fishroom. The German Blue needs to practice his shot on the next batch of eggs if they stay paired up. He is a good egg protector though. These fish are like discus in that they never get boring! Thanks for your input. You’re going to turn me into a breeder yet. First you gave me the angel bug, then you sent me a slutty half black......ha ha

    For whatever reason, HB blues don't work out the way they should on paper. Should be a simple F1xF1 and 25% HB blues, but I never got a clean pattern in two generations.

    Glad they took a liking to the sword. Always fun watching them interact with the scape.

    No. Half blacks almost never follow the rules. The pair that were the parents had produced 100% HBs in a spawn of around 200. They had just two culls in the entire batch. There's a thread here about them somewhere.
