I have issues with my females as well. My VT female is plump with eggs right now. She shows her breeding bars when she is in the jar next to the male. I released her and she when strait to sub mode and hit all over. The male ripped her up a little to (he is a very aggressive breeder) so I took her out and put her back in the jar with the male and she filled up with color again and breeding bars. Someone please tell me whats up with that?
Also, my CT female is ready to breed, but she is more aggressive than my male and wants to rip him apart. It there anything I can do to get these two mamas to breed nicely? Anything I can use to help?
My breeding tank is a 5 gal set up, bare bottom, cup for bubble nest (had a huge net in it right now), a few fake plants (cause all the pet stores out here have crappy plants that have snail eggs all over them), temp is about 80`F
