He is still chasing her rather than building a nest. She dropped a round of eggs just now, but obviously they weren't fertile. Anything I can do to get him interested in nesting? I have another male I can use, but if I can get this one to work I would like to.

Have you used IAL? If not, it might help him get in the mood.

OK, then that's not it. Sometimes we just have to be patient, and hope she doesn't drop too many eggs before they get the hang of it. ;)

Yeah, it's driving me crazy! She's already dropped once, and is being nothing but submissive; yet, he's still seeking her out for a chase rather than nesting. MEN, huff.

LOL
Seriously, I understand. I have a beautiful HM double tail blue/green male and a pale blue HM female mustard gas. I just can't seem to get them interested in each other. I've tried twice, and am conditioning them for a third try.

Some males don't build a nest till after spawning starts. What do you have in the tank for the male to nest under? My steel male didn't build a nest the first attempt so I pulled them and reconditioned for 2 weeks and he started nest building before I put him back in the spawn tank. Some males prefer different things to build under too. I've found my males love bubble wrap over styrofoam cups.

I have a floating IAL, bit of bubble wrap, floating plants and a bit of Pathos. He just started blowing a nest a few moments ago. (Had to recup the female to give her a break) Now with her in sight, but not moving so much he seems more focused.
