Conditioning Time

So Cali has now expelled all her eggs and ate them....do I have to do another 2 weeks to get her to build up more eggs or is their any way I can speed up the process so I can try breeding sooner?

You need to remove the female from the breeding tank once shes done laying eggs or else she'll eat them all

Conditioning time differs, depending on general health.
I feed mine excessively with frozen and live foods, thus do not condition. But if you are feeding sparingly, a few pellets per day, then IMO you need to condition more than a week. If your female was conditioned and released eggs before she was spawned, IMO, you don't need to condition her for 2 weeks. 5 days should be sufficient for her to prepare more eggs.

Oh, do not let her constantly see a male during the conditioning period. Otherwise she will release eggs again.

I feed frozen foods and pellets, normally rotate between brine shrimp and bloodworms which I feed twice a day and then peletes twice a day. Hopefully she will egg up fast on that routine again, she did last time. I think after 4 days conditioning I'll put her in the chimmney in the breeding tank for a day or two and then let her go and see if they can get it right this time. I am breeding them in a bucket rather than the 10 gallon tank as they were avoiding each other for 3 days straight in there.

She has released eggs. Usually she will spawn faster. So don't leave her in a chimney for 2 days. 1 is enough. I usually release female in late afternoon and they usually spawn the next morning.

Virgins may take much longer (not always).
