They are both working on a bubble nest! I heard from Bryana that this can mean that they are happy...Is that true? And I think that they are about 7 months old, isn't that prime breeding time? Could that be why they are making a bubble nest? There is no female in my house, so I don't know why they would.

Bubblenests just mean that they're ready to breed/protecting territory. It's not a symbol of happiness, it's just instinct. You don't really know their age, you just guess. They're usually 6-12 months when they arrive at the pet store.. And yes, they usually breed between 6-12 months.

I thought that it had something to do with them wanting to breed...I'm way to inexperienced, so these guys probably won't be getting lucky! Even if I WAS experienced, my mom would just laugh if I told her that I wanted to breed...

Well, it might mean that. But the real point is being ready. They don't seem breeding quality.. Do they have a 180* spread? 2 of my CT girls only have a 170* spread. -.- But I love them as much.

I know that FH has about a 175-180, but I can't tell with SF...He wont flare at the mirror.

After some more practice with FH, I got his gills to puff out and he got MAD. I can now say that FH has a 180 degree spread. Still trying with SF!

I got SF a new tank yesterday with new rocks and new plants. He really likes it! We bought heaters and thermometers, but the thermometers read 78 degrees without the heater, so we are returning the heaters. SF has two tall plants and one short, and FH has one short, two medium, and one tall. They look happy!
