    I have wanted these since I 1st saw this breeder post pix of his fish.

    Finally I succumb to buying them and ordered a Breeding pair on Saturday Last Week.

    Paid for them on Monday Afternoon and they arrived from Thailand This Afternoon.

    Almost 4 Days in Transit and all very healthy.



    A Size Comparison to Normal Fighters. They are all in the Same Cubes for Comparison Purposes Only.

    Wow, they look amazing :) At least not being able to go to TGM tomorrow means you can start things rolling with these beauties!

    I setup the Purple copper and the female the other day.
    After Adding IAl to the spawn tank. it has done the trick.
    he has built a huge thick nest and so they should spawn later day hopefuly.

    The water is Very Brown with IAL as this is how they were raised.
    (As recommended by Surat-Ram_91)

    Thanks

    Took her out last night and gave her some prawns and mollies to munch on. Not even phased in the slightest. was flaring away @ the Combtail Giant. Hussy. Should not take her long to fill with eggs again then.

    Grumpy has been very good during the night. He has colelcted all teh eggs and put them in the nest and comes to the front to see who is coming near them.
    He is being the dutiful dad and keeps checking the eggs every so often.
