So, day three. he has his nest, she seems okay, and the temperature is just right... still nothing. At times like now i start to worry. Is she full of eggs or not? Because of my other female, Rainy, she is huge o-o completely full of eggs, but she isint red like the fish i wanna breed. And i think, should i switch them? i doubt it of course, because she flares AT the male..hmm

Give them time......it can take 3, 4, even 6 days and longer to spawn, but look really close at the nest for eggs and if the male is mouthing anything or not, and the female behavior will tell you if they spawned or not....they can do this when your not looking.....I hope not....

Still no spawn by day 4, I would do a 50% water change and mess the nest up but leave them together, also how are you feeding them, sometimes feeding them side by side can help especially when you have live foods like mosquito larva.

Your breeding tank is looking awesome! I wish my 10gal divided tank looked 1/2 as good!
