Well my pair started embracing, the female released her first few eggs and ate them, dad didn't even look for them, still working on his epic nest -_- Hopefully they will figure it out better later.

Well when I said geno trait, I mean like a gene that would always be present in your own line. Like for example, my friend used to breed platties or mollies and she eventually added a red male or female to get a red spot on the caudal, all of her fish had this red spot on the caudal and she could tell it was from her stock whenever they were mixed with some pet store males or females.

I hope you know what I mean.

Which pair is this? I remember you saying that your one marble HMPK pair are actually very fast spawners and she bars up every time she sees the male.

Yeah that's a different pair. It's the first pair in this video.

The dad is picking up some eggs now and getting them in the nest but he's not super on top of it.

Ahh yes. They are truly an amazing pair. And no problems With them right? Like rips or tears.

Nope. A few nips in her fins and maybe a small one in his and that's all.

Well I was wrong about him being so gentle over night. Her anal fin is in shreds and the one side I can see at this point has a few scales missing.
I am trying a technique suggested, and am floating a second male in a cup in the tank. Seeing if he will make the main main get territorial and blow a nest. I will be removing the 2nd male in a few minutes. If this fails, and I do not see signs of any change in the breeding I will try another technique of placing a second female in the tank (in a cup) to make the first female "Jealous" see what happens.
If these fail I may consider removing them to recondition, and move on to my second prepared pair.

Now here is a question that I can't remember the answer to. Is there such a thing as the female being too small? I have two small females that are still fairly young say 4-5 months, they have had breeding bars since being next to any male, and are in fact eggy. Could a male say half again or so their size embrace them?
