I have butterflies in my stomach right now! I'm so excited! I went and checked on them at 8:30 PM (an hour ago) and I caught them attempting to embrace! I'm not going to be able to sleep now!

It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen... The female slowly approached the nest, following the male. Once under, he immediately started waggling his body up against hers and she reciprocated and tilted her head down. He wrapped his body around her in a U shape as she went limp and he slowly circled his body around her and then he went limp and they drifted to the bottom of the tank together, wrapped in the embrace. And then the female just sat there at the bottom, looking flabbergasted like she just had her first kiss. It was beautiful!

I've been peeking every now and then and have seen them do this 6 times now. But then he chases her off and she darts away. Is that normal? Or should they be embracing constantly? Is this just practice?

Virgins can take ages to get it right. So don't be too worried if it looks really awkward or they stun each other or they kind of look like they don't have the foggiest idea what they are doing.

A lot of times they will break up after wrapping to display and occasionally chase. As long as the female remains submissive and returns to the nest to wrap it should be okay.

Thanks, she definitely is coming back to the nest every few mins, but they don't wrap every time, sometimes she gets chased off. But she comes right back when he goes to get her.

Yeah that sounds normal. Some of my pairs take hours and hours to spawn while others are very 'Wham, bam, thank you ma'am'.

Good luck with your spawn. They are a ripper of a pair.

When I checked on them this morning, I was a little disheartened to see that, like last time, he has no nest after 24 hours! The cup is completely empty of bubbles. urgh!

So I left them, hoping he would rebuild his nest...

And an hour ago, I caught them doing this!!!

(Im really not sure why it looks so yellow....youtube had an option for auto color correct...maybe that was it. Odd..)



And heres some pictures.








Checking out their eggs. So cute!
