I am so glad to see our breeding section growing. For a long time we didn't have anyone who could give good advice about breeding. Sure, people can get info from a book but I'd rather get info and advice from someone who has experience.
I remember when it was just me....boy it's great to have some help around here! Lol.

I love learning new things from all te other breeders too!

You want horizontal breeding bars. These are more "stress stripes".

I will continue to condition this pair...my almond leaves don't come in for a few weeks and by that time I'll have my replacement super red male so I'll do two spawns...got a new spawning tub today....just need the heater and I'm getting plants for Christmas.

If you want a reccomendation on an almond leaf seller I reccomend Amy in Bangkok...I paid an extra $6 and she gave me another 100 grams of leaves...she's pretty cheap on her Grade C leaves...$13 (shipping inluded) VS $65 for another sellers Grade A leaves.

The female blew a big nest today but all she does is get stress stripes when she sees him. Might have to ask Karen for a new girl...

You are conditioning them, right? Try this; don't let the stressed female see a male during the whole conditioning process (1 - 2 weeks). Flare her to another female instead. Only let her see the male when your ready to breed them. This usually works for me. Good luck.
