So I scrapped the first pair due to the male and female not being so compatible after one week in the breeding tank the male stopped trying to build a bubblenest and the female still didn't seem interested in him. I decided to start over and purchased a new pair. Male is a Royal Blue/solid Black face HM & Female is a turquois Blue CT. I have started them on loodworms and freeze dried brine shrimp. I will continue this for 1-2 more weeks. My Question is about the breeding tank. I have the water level at 6 inches and the temp is 78 degrees. I added some live plants too. Should I add any aquarium salt or blackwater extract?
And when should I add the male and the female? I have heard that the best thing to do is to add the male and let him get used to his new tank first then 3-5 days later release the female into the breeding tank with him. Also, should I continue to feed the breeding pair in the breeding tank once the female is released or do you not feed them until they have spawned?
Sorry for all the questions but I want to make sure to get it right this time.
