Thanks! I love watching them...although they are getting really aggressive right now with my other fish and really protecting "their plant". I just wish the actual spawning would begin...they are really taking their time getting those eggs laid and fertilized...lol.

Geez....jrp, I'm not sure. My friend Bryan (bs6749) should be able to help out on that one....I think they are some kind of marble though..not sure. The female is really pretty close up. She has an irridescent blue in her fins and face (pic attached).

Yeah, they certainly have some marble in them, other than that I can't really place them

I do have a brine shrimp hatchery kit and I do have a 5g tank with heater in case any of these survive. Keeping my fingers crossed!! Thanks CTD!!

Yay...the eggs are still there this morning. They are so cute guarding the leaf. The female is just fanning away at those eggs. This is just the cutest thing ever....I just hope they are fertilized. I guess it's time to pull out that 5g tank!! BTW --- how can I be sure these little guys are fertilized. I know I have read somewhere that the color should tell you...but I just can tell. They appear darker in the pictures than they do in "real life". Both parents are taking turn fanning though and being very protective. I guess they would still do this even if they weren't fertilized, huh??? Can you tell I am a complete newbie at this....

Here is the latest video of them fanning the eggs and being protective of their eggs. I really think they are equally sharing the job now. It is just too fun to watch!!

I can only count about 15-16 eggs that are completely white (unfertilized??) on the entire leaf.
