So it sort of happened by accident , I was planning on breeding them just not so soon.
And I was conditioning the pair and well I came up stairs to the female and the male happily swimming together
The female had been eggy for a really long time
and this is a new male
so you see I let them swim around and it took hours but he started making a nest
the thing is
the female doesn't wanna wait
she keeps popping his bubble nest rubbing all over him trying to get him to wrap her
so I separated them till he was done and he is quite the perfectionist with his bubble nest
(They're in a ten gallon tank heated and clean with a light btw with plants and hiding places )
Heres my problem
SHES SO FAT HE CANT WRAP HER
when conditioning I fed her quite a bit and shes a little piggy ,
will waiting a day or two before feeding help him wrap her?
they've tried about 15-20 times
also these are first time parents
