Lily has been released and all is going well, I added a few more plants, and he is being a LOT less violent this time. One question:Should lily be leading him to the very small nest?I thought it was him that was supposed to be leading her...oh well, whichever way it is supposed to happen, it's working this way :P

Sometimes she will look ready, and he is still in that chase her around mode. I think he needs to be convinced that she is indeed submissive. If it looks like she is being too bossy, he'll have to slap her around a bit... Just their way is all... Just try not to distract them.

I'm feeling very proud of myself, have managed to only check them once every hour from very far away!Not actually sure if anything happened yet because I was trying to stay as far away as possible, but I think they were trying (and failing) to embrace!

Unfortunately yes I do, Lily has been removed, he has beaten her to h*ll and back and they haven't bred, can fish bleed?because there was red stuff on the top of the water when I removed her.I will breed her with my other male, he is a lot calmer, Gandalf is WAY too aggressive for lily to breed with, I will breed Gandalf with jade instead, or another female if I decide to get one!

Make sure you give her plenty of time to heal up and rest before breeding her again.

This seems strangely familiar as my gf has told me which apartment she likes and we will be making an offer tomorrow...

Best of luck on your next spawn. I hope lily is doing OK.
