Lol, I didn't think of it that way, but I do like that theory!

I didn't put Ruby in the tank today, just didn't have a moment spare, but hopefully will put her in for a bit tomorrow, and then on Friday when I get home from work leave her in over night for hopeful release on Saturday morning *fingers crossed*

I don't think my MW culture worked, but I think I see something going on with my VE. Fingers crossed everything works

*Crosses fingers*

Ugh. So Ruby has been in her coke bottle in the tank for two days. Gabriel has been hanging around her, and appeared to attempt a bubble nest yesterday, however there is nothing today, and today was the day I planned to release them :(

Should I take her out, and just start conditioning again? Swap Gab for Sawyer (who I haven't conditioned the same as Gab)? Or just take a risk, release her, see if he makes a nest and hope for the best?

I've decided to release her. I was doing a bit more research this morning, and some people have said that their males didn't make nests until they actually started spawning! So I'm going to camp out infront of the tank to make sure they don't kill each other, and hope for the best *fingers crossed*

Well no luck with these two :( She is still in the coke bottle in the tank until tomorrow. I was hoping he would build a bubble nest but he is being stubborn. So I'll put them back into their normal tanks, and I'm going to start conditioning them again, along with Sawyer properly, and maybe in two weeks, we might have some more luck. Sigh. I had hopes it would just work, lol.

I did. She was in there most of the day, and he just ignored her, and spent most of his time looking at his reflection. So at the end of the day, I put her back into the coke bottle, and he ignored her as well, and she spent another day like that, and still no bubble nest. I've moved them back into their normal tanks now, and I'm going to condition Sawyer and Ruby instead for now, and see how we go :)
