Began floating male with female, after him seeming interested in her in her own container. He immediately began to dance and flare, and made a bubble nest in his container.
Began seasoning new spawning tank with Prime, IAL, Moss balls, one java plant, and a bamboo shoot glass container, sideways as a hiding place for female.
April 27-8pm--Put male in first and let him get used to his new surroundings. Wax paper used this time, for bubble nest as, the bubble wrap was hard to see if eggs were there or not, and also ruined bubble nest whenever water slightly moved.
Tank temp is 82 degrees.
Introduced female at 11:30p. Male immediately went over and began his dance. She let him chase her and, when he stopped, she went back to get him. She investigated area where bubble nest would hopefully be, and used the back of the bamboo vase, instead of the inside, to hide. Once he stopped chasing, she went back to dance, and get his attention.
Male and female were primed with flightless fruit flies, mosquito larvae and blood worms.
Noticing male over near the wax paper, lights went out at 12:30p. Unable to see if he is building bubble nest or not but, female seems to keep coaxing him back there. Will check how the progress went in the morning.
Do not have female picture but, from same spawn and, red body with white trim around fins. Bought from breeder on ebay with 100% feedback as a pair.
