Well we had a sudden change of plans, based on the quality I'm seeing from the two fry I have left from the original marble spawn I decided to do another spawn with the same breeders. I'm still using Rio but instead of Jane I'm using Ada (Check the Double Spawn Log or the thread "Decisions Decisions" to see her picture).

The set up is as follows:
10 gallon tank filled to 5 inches (a little less than half way)
Java moss mixed with Naja Grass (about two handfuls)
50watt heater
1 large Almond Leaf
Temp 82*
Female is in a "breeder trap" instead of a 1 gallon jar
In addition to the IAL I have a 3x4 piece of bubble wrap (bubble side down) as a potential nesting site
Hood with light on (which I'll be leaving on 24 hours a day)
Saran Wrap over the tank (under the hood) to help keep it really humid for strong bubbles

Breeders added at 5:45

Currently Ada doesn't seem interested in Rio's advances. Rio seems to be thinking about starting a nest, he's blown a few bubbles but nothing that has stuck. He's flaring and dancing for Ada and she's trying her best to ignore him.

Rio is not much of a bubblenester, he doesn't usually have one in his tank and if he does it's usually not very impressive so I don't know how long its going to be until he get's down to business.

The spawning tank is set up in my bedroom this time (instead of the sun porch where the other spawning tanks were). I'm doing this because I want to keep a good eye on this pair.. I never did see them spawn last time.

Thanks :)

It's been about an hour and so far no love and no nest. I got spoiled with Sid and Nancy.. Sid took one look at her and went straight to building his nest. I wish they were all that easy LOL

Rio is hanging out under the leaf and bubble wrap a little more.. no bubbles yet though.

Ada has finally started paying attention to Rio so maybe he'll be more inclined to nest now.
