Help Please Quick

My pair already got eggs and the female is out.

But my friend has a problem. Please HELP.

She/He Wrote
"I may pull the pair out. No successful breeding yet. She is very ready and showing the male she is submissive but he just chases her away and starts on his bubble nest again. She is very beat up and I don't want her to get beat up much longer if he won't spawn with her. I saw one successful embrace but no eggs dropped. What should I do?"

PLEASE ANSWER HER QUESTIONS. Thank you.


In addition, I saw some picture posted here on the forum that shows of beat up female (some look bad too) during the mating ritual. Would you please repost or point where so my friend and look and compare? Thank you.

Since the female is still active and doesn't seem too bad in how she is acting, I would leave her a little longer. If she starts looking wore out or does nothing but hide, take her out.

That is what I suggested to my friend too but not sure.

MY FRIEND, This is one sample how female can got beat up prior to successful spawn. I try to find some more sample pictures.

oh yeah tails get ripped, scales go flying, but as long as it's nothing life threatening I wouldn't worry about it. If she's still showing signs of being willing I wouldn't worry.
