I'm new on the board and I am going to attempt my first spawn. I have my breeding set-up ready to go and I have placed the male into the tank. He has been in th etank for about a day and still no bubble nest. I place the female in her own bowl next to the breeding tank for about 30 min/day and the male gets excited and flares but no sign of him producing a bubble nest???? The female is ready to be bred, showing all the signs (belly full of eggs, vertical bands) Should I release her into the breeding tank and hope that he will build a nest soon or wait until he builds a bubble nest before releaseing the female into the tank??
Here is a picture of the breeding tank, the temp is at 80 degrees, live plants too?
