Not sure on the rosetail. He seems to stay under the bubble wrap but comes back this way. I can't tell if there is a nest or not, so I am waiting until tomorrow. I don't want to move the bubble wrap and destroy the nest, if there is one so, I will wait. He had chased the female away so, I took her out. She is in a hospital tank with some AS. She doesn't appear harmed at all.
As for the mustard, I don't think it took. He worked with her for a while, and then chased her away but there was no bubble nest at all and he refused to stay under the wrap. To me, I am taking that as a no-go.
I just hope I am not doing this wrong. I have them in 2 gallon tubs, with IAL and plants (one moss ball and one leafy plant). It's frustrating but I want to keep trying.
New hmpk on the way...I just hope I can breed the rosetail. I wouldn't have bought him if I knew the problems. The listing on ebay just said, HM and, I didn't see the difference until someone pointed it out.
Thanks for the help and advice. Any more advice on breeding methods that work, are helpful. I do have a 10 gallon ready to go. I liked the idea of a tub inside of it. In Kansas, I have a hard time getting plants. We don't have much in the moss plant area. I've been buying moss balls. They seem to sell a lot of those here.
Thanks again! *hangs head*
