Spawn log

Here goes my second attempt at spawning.
The pair have been conditioned for almost two weeks, so I set up the tank today


I have to wait untill my plants/shrimp/bs eggs get here before I introduce the pair



This is kind of stupid.. but I cant seem to find a styrofoam cup anywhere
I have a 3x4 piece of styrofoam, and bubble wrap. Which would be better?

You just want something that floats so they can build their nest in it. I'd say cut a hole out of the middle of the foam, it should work perfectly. Feeding rings are also a good alternative to the cup.

Ok I'll do that, but what does the hole do?

Same thing the cup does. It's just a floating border so the fish can build a nest inside it more easily than just free-floating.

oh.. ok
They spawned today!
I see what you mean about the hole, I didnt make one but the male seems to prefer having his bubbles and eggs on the edge of it

After he moved all his eggs to a corner in one big cluster
