Well... total failure.

Everything was set perfectly but the female REFUSED to bar up or submit for the male. She just kept running. At one point yesterday she was swimming around releasing eggs. That got me thinking and I realized I don't think I've ever seen her bar up.

The male wasn't even being overly aggressive IMO. A few nips here and there but mostly he would come up beside her and display and try to get her to follow him to the nest. Finally today I think he'd had enough because her fins are torn up pretty good and she's got some missing scales... so I took her out when I got home from work and checked on them.

I'm not sure if it's that she's not conditioned enough (she was conditioned for 2 weeks not to mention she was already conditioned from a previous spawn failure) or if she just doesn't like my males but this is the second failed attempt with her.


So I dunno... I'm thinking of giving Dan/Venus another week to condition and then putting them in the spawn tank on Friday (ok.. so not a whole week but they've already been conditioning for 2 weeks). Or I might just put off spawning until the end of this month and just work on growing up my reds (which will be arriving tomorrow!)
