Is she showing vertical bars? He's got a good bubble nest going, so if she seems ready, I'd release. But I've never spawned before, so someone else may say otherwise! :)

Then you should be good to go! Just keep a close eye on them of course. Hopefully they get right to it! I'm gonna be attempting to spawn again on Monday. This time I'm not going to jar my female. I can't see her vertical stripes anyways because of her color. Good luck!

Vertical bars are a good indicator of readiness to spawn, but they are not the only indicator you should go by.

Usually when a female is ready to spawn she will respond very eagerly to the male's advances and show a lot of interest in getting out of wherever she is being contained and getting over to the nest.

There is often a certain way the female will move her body (I think people call it the s-curve) that can also signal that it is time to release.

I believe Indjo calls it flirt swimming. :)
