i wish i could take pic but i have a chocolate lab he got a hold of it ,but the female still hasnt eaten any that i know of and she has this cute bubble nest with tiny bubbles.
I have had females like this somtimes i leave the female in the tank and occasionally she comes out the plants and looks at the male but the male had ick so i took him out then about five minutes later the female came out looked at the nest then just sat there the next day the nest was bigger with little bubblesand they were hatched somtimes females are better than males
I've had another female care for the eggs too, male was an egg eater...I pulled her after the fry hatched and lowered the water. She quit caring for them, so I pulled her. The females do have a harder time with the nest and keeping them in it. Good luck!!!
