So yesterday, I woke up to a flurry of activity in one of my tanks. Ruby, my little Red Cap Oranda was being chased by Silas, my Ryukin. This is the second time they have spawned together. The first time they spawned, the eggs did not develop, so fingers crossed for this time.

Here are the parents to be:

Managed to save about 50 eggs, so I'm hoping for some gorgeous babies! :)

Very cute fish!!! :). Congrats! But I don't think your red cap is a red cap. Looks like a red/white to me :).

Yeah, I tend to agree. She was sold to me as a red cap, but I guess red & white is a far more accurate description. She is still very young and is only just starting to develop her wen. :)

Yeah, I've just started feeding them blood worms daily and they're currently on Hikari Oranda. I do have the Lion Head, but I don't want to feed it to them until I switch to sand. Too easy to lose the food in the gravel. Won't be long now though until the switch.

They're in a little net breeding cage on the edge of the tank, near the air stone to keep them moving. I've been adding a fungicide to the water to help keep that icky fungus away and I'm hoping for a quick incubation. Will let you know how it goes. :)
