Tip for faster breeding!

Here's a neat trick that I haven't read about and did myself.
I use a 10 gallon spawning tank etc and have the styrofoam cup placed on the viewing side of the tank.
After introducing the male/female to the tank and each other, they would just chase each other forever, seemingly getting nowhere.
At a certain point, he would have finished making his nest and try to bring the female there.
Being a stubborn female, she would just keep hiding (brightly has vertical stripes, so she's ready) and running from the male.

So heres my trick:
I take the female out of the tank in a small half gallon tank or so and place it right outside of the spawning tank, directly under the spawning nest. After about an hour or two of her staring at the nest, I reintroduce her into the tank and they spawn within an hour or two. This method forces her to inspect the nest, although its from the outside, and greatly increases spawn rate from my experience. Hope this will help out some of you!
