okay, so i have both my couple in the breeding tank right now. i had her in a vase for a day, and at first they flared at each other, but the she submitted and even seemed to flirt with him some. she had breeding bars (at least as best i could tell she did, but she is very light colored so its pretty hard to tell) and was very eggy when i put her in, and he had a nice bubble nest started. so i put her in, and he starts chasing her like i knew he would, then he started trying to flirt with her, and she just keeps running. they have been in there for nearly 4 hours and she just wont respond to him. hes trying, swimming beside her and wiggling, but she just dives to the bottom of the tank and wont look at him. then, she went and smashed him nest. i would leave them in their, but im afraid she is going to get hurt, because he keeps biting at her tail. she has a couple little chunks missing from it now... i know hes not biting her to be mean though, hes just getting frustrated when she wont pay any attention to him.
so should i just call this one quits, if shes not showing any interest anymore? shes still eggy, but i dont think she has breeding bars, if she even did in the first place. is this kind of thing normal, for the female to act totally uninterested :/ please let me know quick!
