Question They have be spawning for about....

My pair have been spawning for about 2 hours now and they are still at it.... She has bars, pearl showing, and a swollen belly of eggs. When will she likely release the eggs???

How long have they been together? I've read that sometimes it can take over 24 hours. I would make sure there are plenty of hiding spots and keep a close eye on them.

After wrapping Pearl goes limp below the nest then releases a egg and Nepolean catches it in his mouth then releases into nest......Is this the right process

After they wrap, you should see the eggs being released then the male will get them and put them into the bubblenest. Have you actually seen them wrap yet?

You have seen her release the eggs? The eggs should fall to the bottom and he will pick them up and put them into the nest. Sometimes the female will, too and sometimes she will eat them.

Its ok if she eats some. I'm sure he's picking some up and putting them in the nest.
