I have re-catured the female and she is floating in the spawning tank, getting a bit of a break from chasing, and watching the male as he finally starts his nest. (in the most in inconvenient of places, but hey, whatever floats his bubbles.) I'll release her again once the nest grows in size.

The male has a bubble nest, female approaches every once and a while before he chases her off. She's barred up like a jailor. Hopefully they'll spawn soon.

She seems to be pretty agressive when approaching the nest. I.e, flaring her gills and such. She's also 'poking?' the nest before he chases her off. Is that normal?

She's got to check it out first. If she does not like it she'll tear it up and he has to start over....

Got to have faith, life will find a way.

Male still adding on to his large bubble nest. He seems to seek out the female every once and a while, leur her to the nest, wiggles-- but is rejected. Female has dropped eggs twice since yesterday, and is still being somewhat agressive.

Woke up this morning, no change. I'm thinking about swapping females...
He's still nesting, so maybe that could work? Suggestions?

Leave them be it can take 3 days for new spawners so dont worry to much. As long as its not relentless chasing and attacking its fine. Sometimes having another female around in the tank (like floating opposite the bubblenest) for 15 min can motivate the female more. Does the female still have eggs left sense she is dropping them so much?
