My female & male have been in the breeding tank [14 gallons] together for almost 48 hours. His bubble nest is the size of my palm, she has her stripes, they were conditioned, etc etc.
I have a heater, set to between 80-82 degrees, lots of plants, places to hide. I have done my research. But this I just cant find the answer for;
I came home from work earlier & Richards fins are all torn up & Penny's got slight tears in hers. She has lost a lot of her coloring & her stripes are just visible but she still has her ovipositor showing. Richard still seems to be adding to the nest though, or just floating under it. I've put her in the big glass jar I had her in when they first were placed in there just for now because Im unsure of what this all means. I can't seem to see any eggs in the nest, but over the past few days there was only chasing & no nipping to today a lot of his fins ripped apart.
Should I look at re-conditioning them or keep them in there or try another pair or what?
help would be nice, not a lot of this "put down newer members" stuff I've seen a lot lately.
