First Spawn... Well here it goes

Well here are my first pair I intend to breed, both CT which I thought for my first time was a good choice. the female is now only slightly smaller than the male. I have been conditioning them for the past 2 weeks feeding them dry pellets and bloodworms the male has built several nests in the last month but have been destroyed when doing water changes. the female shows all the signs, the vertical stripes, flaring, the white dot so I believe they are ready. I have been letting them see each other for about 30 minutes a day for the past week and am now letting the female stay in the tank till tomorrow then I will release her. I have done my research so yes im ready for all the work and have the supplies needed so here we go lets see if I can do this. will try to update with photos every few days!!! wish me luck!!!

Well the bubble nest is built the release has happened and they are courting each other, lots of chasing around but no injuries yet so hopefully they should start the embrace soon!

Looks good so far! Don't do anything that could possibly interrupt them at this vital stage...

Ya im making sure that I don't touch the tank or disrupt the water, I don't think the male is quite ready yet because the female comes to the nest head down in a submissive stance and he will dance for a minute then will chace her off

Well I'm about 24 hours since the release I have paper taped up so nothing can distract them but when I peak to take a look the male is under his nest and female is on the other side of the tank. Any idea what is going on? He hasn't been building since last evening on his nest so not sure what's going on:/

Are there eggs in the nest? How damaged is she? Unless she is super damaged, leave them together. It is perfectly normal and common for them to spawn in more then one day.
