In that case leave them be. Feed them, but not to much.

Pellets would be better but both would work. You don't want to dirty the spawn tank but you don't want them to starve. How did you condition?

Edit- That great! Leave them alone now and check back in an hour... If they are still embracing leave them but when they are done and there are eggs in the nest take her out.

No no don't feed them if they are embracing! If you have already leave it in there I guess but now you just have to let nature take it's course! Sorry if I confused you... If they weren't embracing then you should have fed them.

Oh well usually they embrace in quick succession... The fact that they have already embraced once is a good sign now.

That just means that they are not quite ready but a embrace is a good sign.
