OKay so, I bought this "dalmation" looking HM dragon. He is extremely social and a very mellow fish. Definitely old enough to breed (7 months now) and he sure does know how to wrap but...he is not bubble nest educated I guess. He wraps under the cup, or the sponge wrap (I think I have tried it all..including the almond leave), they spawn and then, the eggs all lie at the bottom on the tank. I've tried everything--all my others spawn well in my 2.5 gallon, with IAL extract, one plant for hiding and never had an issue--he's driving me NUTS! lol
Ever have a male that, just didn't quite "get it"? I condition, I introduce, temp is perfect, no disturbance...UGH! He has it easier than I ever did, birthing my 5! :)
I will keep him and, he may retire soon but, let's just say, I have hit him up with every female, loaded with eggs and, he gets the wrapping part but that is it!
