By 1g OFL means 1 gallon. OFL lives in the US I believe and that's an abbreviation for gallon, as well as gram .

oh lol! could units of measurement be more confusing? Why can't they all be simple and save me some embarrassment :) Lights are out on the spawning tank now. I'm going to leave a lamp on in the room though so that it's not pitch black. Hope I see a bubble nest in the morning!

Lol you're welcome.

It is confusing, isn't it? Too bad all the countries can't use the same measuring systems.

Isn't the US the only place that has a different unit of measurement?

I'm not sure!

So this morning I let petal out. She seemed interested when she was seperated from him, but now she is just running away and hiding. She has only been in there an hour. Mike is chasing her and flaring and doing all he can to get at her but she just hides lol. I'm sure this is normal so just going to leave them to it for a while. How long from when you put the female in did it take for them to spawn?

Every thing sounds normal. It is normal for them to hide and when she is ready she will come out.
Spawning can happen from 1 hour of realease to nearly a week.

Okay thanks! If it takes a couple of days, should I feed them? I want Mike to have enough energy to look after the eggs/fry well :)

I feed mine when they are together, but I also use lots of live foods to stimulate them...like mosquito larva and guppy fry......
