Doesnt make bubble nest

I conditioned my pair with JBL-redmico and JBL novos.

after two weeks of conditioning, I put male and female into breeding tank. I put female into jar and male is free swimmer.

Put some eledoa densa and white glass cup.

male flares and wacks his body but does not build nest.

should I feed my male and female? or should I seperate them?

they've been in breeding tank for 24 hours.

not even a little bubble nest has done.

female is ready to breed. her ovipositor is visible and her horizontal lines became vertical as well

Is the male ready to breed or is he just trying to fight her? I don't look for nests nor breeding bars. I look at the way they swim, what I call flirt swimming. both must flirt, then you could breed them. Otherwise they may fight.

Secluding the male and allowing them to see the female for a couple minutes a day works very well to get them ready to spawn.

Male wags her body and shows his beards. I released the female and male wags his body and chases female hits little little nothing fatal but nothing about breeding as well :)
