I use to have alot of troubles with bubbles lasting and spent so much time fretting over nothing,
Hey Chicklet. I have a Styrofoam cup in there with some plastic non floating plants. My big concern is that they are popping as soon as he makes them or a few seconds later. Even if he blows them under the Styrofoam. It's really strange.

Hey doggyhog. I have plastic saran wrap for the cover pulled as tight as it can go. It is nice and humid looking so far lots of water droplets on the sides and on the wrap so far. I also turned up the heat in the room so it would not be so cold compared to my water temperature.

*sigh* so I decided to not make a new thread and just tell everyone on this one...my male disliked the female she was all submissive almost right away breeding bars really noticeable, fins close to body swimming with head down slowly towards him...And he was like EWWWWW cooties! And kept swimming away from her and hiding! I was like what...that's weird and he kept doing this. Then he just tore up the female and kept running away and sitting on the tank bottom all stressed like. So I just took him out, he seems content again lol. I started a new pair a few days ago. He has a nicer bubblenest already anyways he's working away. I think in a day or two I could release the female, she just flares at him sometimes now, I am hoping she will stop soon

I guess he just didn't like her? lol Maybe try another male. She acted like she definitely wanted to spawn.
