Pics and Videos are loading onto the computer right now. They are doing the same thing over and over again. She comes close, he flirts (LOL) and then they chase each other, then he works on the nest. :) Things are looking up!!!!!! I hope I have eggs before I go to bed tonight.

When I go to bed, should I put her back in the chimney? I don't want her to get real beat up when I sleep.

I'm afraid that if you put her in the chimney, it might disrupt things. We need andakin or MrVampire to answer this question. lol Are you going to be home all day tomorrow?

getting a specific pair to spawn can be frustrating. do you have another female to work with? some say it could take days but i believe if they dont do their business within the first couple of hours, the chances of them spawning is slim.

here is the story behind my spawn. a pair was left in the tank for over a day, and all they did was fight. during the entire time, the male would still work at his nest (like yours). after replacing the female, the new pair got down to it within minutes.

you have to ask yourself where you want to draw the line and put a stop to the aggression. if you are determined to get this specific pair to breed regardless what happens, then leave them overnight. thats what i did because both of my fish were 'disposable'. if things dont work out by morning, you'll have some badly beaten up fish. and if they do manage to spawn, you'll miss out on lots of pretty pictures.

good luck with everything!

Ok thanks so much!!!!!!

Would it work to take her out, then put her back in, in a few days? I don't have another female that would be good with him.
