My first plakat breeding.

I let my male and female together yesterday night, And today male and female started to embrace together. They already embrace together, and the female release some eggs but the male and female want to embrace again, What it suppose to be? I cannot see clear the eggs because my tanks is not transparent.

A good pair may only take a few hours. But a less suitable pair may take a full day.

Be patient and wait until the male chases the female away from the nest and usually the female looks a lot thinner. Be careful (since this is your first attempt) Sometimes while female helps pick up eggs, an impatient and over aggressive male might attack her. But she will return to the nest and continue embracing. So make sure they are really done before taking her out.

They helping each other take the eggs,But it only take a hours something(i did'nt count) because i busy monitor them. After that the male chase female . Then, i put the female in other containers. All i need to do is wait the egg is hatched.

If the male eats the eggs, take him out. If not, let him tend to the eggs.You can leave the male in with the fry or you can take him out once fry are free swimming. It's your choice.

Not to be rude but this is really stuff you should know before spawning.

As long as the female doesn't have fin damaged she can usually be reconditioned and spawned again in as little as 2 weeks.
