Well first he has to pick up his eating so I can condition him, and then that takes about 2 weeks. So a rough guesstimation would be about 2 and a half weeks unless you think I could get away with it earlier.

How exactly did you condition your pair crowntail, because I can feed them the right food and everything but I read you should also show them to each other everyday, how do you go about that?

You could put their tanks near enough to each other so they could see each other.

I would but they are both in full 10gallons on diffeent shelves so I dont think I could do that. I could put on of them in a bowl when I want them to see each other and put that near their tank but that might be a bit stressful. They might be able to seee each other now though if they tried hard enough. Their tanks are about a foot away and her tank is maybe 5 inches higher and to the right.

I think what I would do is to put her in a vase and put it into the breeding tank and let them see each other for a few days. This would be after you condition them. Then, hopefully, during this time he will build his bubblenest.

Alright thats what I tried last time, but the site said to let them see each other a few minutes at a time throughout the whole conditioning so I wasnt sure. I want to make sure I do it absolutly perfect this time.
