We have an absolutely stunning mixed pair: female 5.0″ Red Melon with a male 5.0″ Red Marlboro. Spawned the first time on New Years day in a tank with others before moving them to their own breeding tank. The male went over the eggs, and they both guarded them. I couldn’t move the eggs because they were not on a cone. We will see next time they spawn if they are proven. They are a beautiful pair as you can see in the photographs.
