Talking My first breeding attempt!

Well today i set up a match made in heaven....i arranged my breeding tank & have place the male in the tank with the female in a plastic see-through breeding box in there aswell.
The male is charging about, racing around the box & showing his fins off, flaring & she is following him up & down drastically try to get too him. It's sooo exciting!!!! I've attached a picture to show u.

I'm going to leave them for a couple days yet before spawning, im at present conditioning them & waiting for him to build his bubblenest.

Watch this space.....& i'll keep u informed of how it goes.....

yeh i going to sort the attachments asap.

so.....today is day 2, all signs are good! the male is still flirting majorly, he's built a lovely bubble nest & the female is very active and is showing the dark vertical bands up her side, which ive read is good & is bulging which i pressume means her eggs are ready.

do u think i should let them have 'a go' today this afternoon?

there doing it! there doing it!!!

i released her into the tank & at first it was a bit of a battle! she chased him, he pecked her, she chased him & so on, then she kept going back under the bubblenest for more & lying on her side in front of him & they've been trying for about an hour, but she hasn't been the 'right way round'. Now they got it & i saw eggs once!! soooooo excited!!!

talk about fumbling behind the bushes like there doing!

anyway more wine & watching!

im taking pictures as it goes (can i get done for that!!!? oh well?) i'll show u once its all done!

Hehe!!!! I know it's only the beginning of the process but I can't help but get excited!
Well they did it for 4.5hrs, the bubble nest is full of eggs. The female then started to dart around & hide, so i've removed her into a sheltered compartment tucked away in a seperate tank from the boy. Added a little salt for tonight for her, she ain't suffered much damage apart from battered fins & a small what I believe may be a bite in her scales on the side, but it's hardly recognisable.
He is attending to the nest constantly, blowing bubbles. So he's all cool, I've wrapped the tank at the top with foil to contain heat & humidity in the air inside.
So now....hopefully in a couple days there maybe some babies!!!!

I've taken lots of pics so I'll upload them as soon as I can so u can see.
