The sticky on breeding has a lot of this info in it. I use a Cobalt Neotherm heater in that tank, though I usually use hydor. I have found that putting the male in and letting him check things out in the evening and then adding the female in her chimney overnight seems to work the best for me. He usually has a good start on his bubble nest and she is interested in him. Then I leave them in for a few days depending on how long it takes. I remove her as soon as I am sure that they are done. He stays in for a few more days until they are free swimming. I will probably take Jasper out tomorrow. And I don't feed them in the spawning tank, I try and disturb them as little as possible
Me too. Here they are on day 5. I just did a very small water change to get the gunk off the bottom and when I looked again they were all clustered together....there are a lot more in there than I thought.
These pictures are of just one corner and the others are just as full of babies.
Exiting, I cannot wait, I hope it all works out with vacation
So do I. Our vacation got pushed back by two weeks giving me a little more time to grow them up before I separate the ones I am going to keep and sell the rest. I will post an ad here when they are ready and I have a lfs ready to take them off my hands.
