Just another spawning question...

How long do embraces usually last?

The embrace last only seconds, then they go into a trance, the male recovers first and goes after the eggs, the female usually floats to the top and then awaken and goes after eggs, she will either eat them or spit them toward the nest.
Often the first several embraces you will not have eggs released, sometimes you may get 1-5 eggs and others you will get 30 or more.

Sorry, I need to clarify this question...
How long does the actual spawning last? (When breeders start embracing to when the female has no more eggs)?

That can vary from a couple of hours to 8 hours in my experience.
