Ugh, I've had bad experiences with yellow lol.. I have a female now in time out (for good) as she is waaaay too aggressive. Such a pretty innocent looking yellow too.
I wish you luck on the yellows!

I've left pairs in the tank for 1-2 weeks before with no issues.. but generally after a few days with nothing you can pull them and seclude them for a couple days to "rest" them and try again. Virgins sometimes will take a bit longer, sometimes a week or so. Just don't disturb them if possible.. the more they see you and you do things to the tank, the longer it may take.

I had a red female once that i had problems with because she kept kicking my males butt. eventually she gave me a really good spawn, so it was worth the stress i guess. HAHA

sas can be good, will save her life if your male is too agressive, but in some cases the female can kill the male, and of course cases of the male killing female. its always different. i watch my pair like a hawk

Sid, our male, just ate every damn egg out of the nest. how long should we wait before trying to spawn them again? and do you think next time we should take him out of the spawn tank and just keep the eggs nested with a pipette?

I'm so sorry!
Someone created a post to ask if the male should be allowed to cull the fry. Sounds like Sid read the post & proved they can be trusted to cull.
Keeping the eggs nested w/a pipette sounds like torture! Would it be a 24/7 job, or could you check & re-nest a few times a day?
Do fallen eggs hatch? Why would a "good" egg fall?
