GBR in breeding colors

GBR's are in full breeding color. Cleaning several spots in the tank.
I think eggs, then fry are anticipated

I like them due to the fact that they are a touch different colored than normal Ramerizi. They are missing some of the black coloration normally seen on them. They were listed as (Tangerine), but I believe they are just a different color morph. I kept these many years ago, then the Altispinosa became available, and I got into them for a while. Funny how fish that have been around forever suddenly interest you again.

No viable eggs yet. One spawn, but no fertile eggs. They are out of the mood now. LOL

Update on the Rams. Found eggs again this morning. Gone tonight. Not enough time to hatch, so probably cannibalized.

Its pretty frustrating. Something isn't to their liking, so the spawning attempts are unsuccessful.
Heres the tank their in, their lovestone, and mom, and dad.
