The biggest females belly is staying to get cherry red- just the underside not up into her flanks. I doubt there’s a big enough male for her in the group however as she is the biggest fish by 1/2” or so
Recently received a half dozen of these guys. Looks like 2 females and 4 males They’re looking better everyday. Hopefully I can keep both females alive and get a couple pairs to bond. View attachment 1468403 View attachment 1468404
Well these Rio Manay F0 proteus pikes spawned last night. I didn’t get to the tank early enough this morning to get good pictures in decent light but I took a few pictures of the pair. And the log they spawned in. Female just looks like a deflated balloon. Tube still down a little bit. The bummer is I’m about to take off for 1.5 months of fishing and hunting. No idea if there will be any fry still alive when I get back.
