Thanks to FRA who provided the young albino paradise female (& male) at the winter HAS auction and MSR who provide the very large male blue paradise at the recent spring auction.

My albino male is not quite up to spawning yet but the big blue started flirting the my albino female the moment I put him in the comunity planted tank. So I gave them there own 10g tank friday and yerterday they filled the bubble nest with eggs. Both parents are taking good care of the nest and I expece to have plenty of baby paradise for the next HAS auction. :D

Spawning requirements are the same.
Only difference I've noticed is that paradise eggs float so you really don't need to leave the father in the tank to guard the eggs
and they don't dammage each others fins so you can leave the female in the tank and they will continue to spawn in the same nest.

I believe mine spawned at least twice in the 10 days I left them in the spawn tank as I have fry of different sizes.
