Edit* i meant "never" not "ever" XD

Well this mourning one of my females "Sylvia" made me a nest i started to have second thoughts of her being female, but i remembered that some females DO make nest Then later i was going out to a park i was getting ready and i saw this:

Interesting, I knew females sometimes built nests, but I didn't know they would put eggs in the nest. I though only the males did that. I don't think it would hurt to leave them after all they aren't fertilized so no chance of them hatching. Thanks for sharing! Learn something new every day!

Wow!

Don't think I've ever seen a female build her nest, expel and place her own eggs. How interesting!

So I go to feed my babies for the night and look what I found! Velvet, in her own little tank, 3 feet away from the nearest male did the same thing! There us a bubble nest in the middle of her tank and there are eggs in it. She even looks chunky. total hahahaha moment. Even my bf was a little confused. I love the pic, she's looking at me like "whaaatt??"
