At this moments mymale is laying on top of a decoration with its mouth to the surface, the female is just relaxing behind the cup.

I think I will leave them together overnight, since thats when they make the most progress, I think the male will make it through but I cant decide if I should feed them again, I gave him a few brine shrimp at 7am and a few more around 3:30pm because he was looking tired.

I don't know, maybe you should separate them. It may be stressful for both of them to leave them together.

Sounds good. Is there any way you can get another male to put with the female? Not to take anything away from this one.

No she is just swimming around there because the male is on the other side he is still looking "not to good".

I cant get another male yet because I dont have a place to put him except a one gallon Also I dont think I could afford another heater/filter for another male. Maybe I will just remove them, condtion them even better and try it again in a week or two.

Heck they make a little progress each time, first time nothing, this time a bubble nest, next time maybe a BABY.

From what I've read, I think you are supposed to wait until the male has built the bubblenest before releasing the female.

The male did make a bubblenest before she released the male.......A male doesnt need a heater in a one gallon or a filter....
