What concerned me was how the male was acting. He seemed tired and wasn't even tending to his bubble nest anymore. The female clamped on to his fin in the morning and wouldn't let go, he also stayed at the top for most of the time and was inactive with limp fins and breathing pretty heavy. Whenever the female goes close to him he immediately hides. I had to go to class to I decided to separate them because I didn't want to risk this guy, he's my fav! They are still in the breeding tank though, just with a barrier, can I reintroduce them today or tomorrow or do I have to restart the conditioning all over?
