The tanks have been set up for almost 2 hours now.. so far no bubblenesting. I have IAL and a lid in there as possible nesting sites. I can't find my bubblewrap right now so hopefully they'll choose one of the other options. The lights are off now so I doubt they'll do any nesting tonight.

Just got up about half an hour ago and we have two small nests Bowie made his under the lid like a good boy... Tallahassee wanted to show Myrtle how good a nest he builds so his is right next to her cup over all the java moss >.< I'll move the moss to the other side of the tank before I release her so no eggs get tangled up in it.

They were last night.. now they're hanging out under the IAL mostly and only occasionally going over to say hi. I think Tallahassee might be making a new bubblenest under the lid.

The nests are a little bigger but so far no eggs. Lilly has one nip in her anal fin and is camped out in the java moss while Bowie is on patrol. Myrtle and Tallahassee are fine, Tallahassee has blown more of his fins from all the flaring but that's no biggie.

I don't think they're going to spawn tonight.. most likely tomorrow morning.

I just realized I never posted pics of the second pair. Since Nancy died (r.i.p.) I decided not to use Prince and go with the other pair I got from Martinismommy.

This is Bowie.. not the best picture but it shows his color well enough..



And Lilly Vanilly.




I'm pretty sure Lilly has some marble genes in her so I'm in for some interesting fry with great fins!
