now this is my second spawn. both male and female are ready and well conditioned and the female is so bloated with eggs. she'd explode. now I have the male in the tank (the same tank they spawn in before) and he tries to build his nest, but whenever he creates a bubble, it bursts immediately
. he calls the female to then nest but when she goes there, there is no nest. what's wrong?
bad water or something ??? this is very aged water, more than a week with a strong air stone in it (not stagnant). any ideas ??
now I have the female locked in a transparent plastic container in the spawning tank with the male loose.
