I began conditioning my little torn up male with my black dragon female yesterday. I released her for about an hour but placed her back in her refuge bowl because they're obviously not ready. The male was being very aggressive. I noticed they weren't showing interest in the beginning but I see fireworks after releasing and placing her back. I'm hoping they'll be ready soon but the male hasn't even begun a nest.
I'm using see through plastic tubs because my old spawning tank is being used as a grow-out. I'll upload photos soon but will start a new thread.
