That's what I thought about my Red VT pair but then he started a nest and a few hours later they spawned. Just leave them, the female can take a lot of abuse before being in serious trouble.

Well the female is still getting chased and nipped at but she stopped hiding behind the filter. Still no nest.

I'd say give them a day or two more then if no spawning, re condition.

Do you have an IAL or BWE in the tank? IAL always makes my boys bubble nest. :)

That's what I was thinking.

And unfortunately no :( I was trying to get some BWE but I couldn't find any. If I have to re-condition though I'll definitely buy some IAL or BWE.

Well it takes up to 3 days to make a bubblenest!! also i had that problem but now my male made the bubblenest and still shoos her away.

So i am just giving him time to be his perfectionist that he is!:)

Well the male just kept being aggresive and he didn't work on his tiny bubblenest at all. So I pulled the pair and I might start conditioning again in a couple of days.
