I released the female on Friday and finally today, two days later, they seem ready to spawn. The female is wriggling under the Styrofoam cup, and the male is too, but they can't seem to figure out how! The female is so excited that she's spraying eggs everywhere, while the male can't figure out how to wrap her. They then get distracted by all the eggs and try to pick them up or eat them.
Is there anything.. that you can do to help this?
Also, is it dangerous to leave the female in overnight? I don't want them to mate overnight and have the female killed because I didn't separate them in time.
