At 6:00pm I let the female out because the male had a great nest and the female was not looking stressed.

At first she followed him around she flared at him a few times. They were doing ok then he chased her the fast aggressive way. She has been in there for an hour the male is ready and the female needs to come around I saw her put her head down once she is starting to get it.

I am keeping a close eye one them. I am thinking maybe I should put my more experienced female in. She has been conditioned and if this does not work up I will put her in.

Fingers crossed she comes around.

Last time it was my male that did not seem to get it. Now I feel like this little female is just not ready. He is displaying to her inviting her nicely then he gets pissed and chases her like crazy when she does not do what he wants.

It has only been a short time but I feel like I my other female might be better for him this time because she is experienced and has proven herself to be a good breeder as long as she has a good male.

This mr marbles my male now is not gental. The female is doing more hiding then flirting.

At 2:00 pm I caught the first embrases. No eggs at all and the male woke her up and chased her away. I saw them do it agin still no eggs and this time he ignored the female. She went back for more and he nipped at her to go away.

The spawning has started I just hope eggs come?

Mean while I started another spawn more of an experiment. I have a 18gal round tub. It's filled 6" deep with a leaf and floating plants. This time I took the pair and added them to the tank at the same time. No leaving the female in a cup.

So far it seems like this is much better on the fish. Less stress they get right to business. After 15 min or so and after some chaseing the male is working on a nest. It was funny because at first the female was the aggressor going after the male as he ran away. Then something clicked in the males head and the real chase was on.

Omg it is happening . Trouble and mr marbles started a family. The eggs are falling both look To be gathering them. They spawned

I put too mant plants in the tank Nx can't see if the male is putting the eggs in the nest or eatting them. I have a good feeling he is doing his job. I will check later. The embrasses looks good I think the eggs will be fertile unlike the last one I tried to spAwn.
