If they have perked up and starting to show is just a matter of not uncommon for the female to approach the nest in a head down position several times and then swim away or the male chase her off...this is all part of the pre-spawning game...soon she should approach the nest head down and spawning will begin...often the first several embraces will not result in any eggs dropped and this is also normal...give them time and space...try hard to not disturb them...keep your distance while you watch the spawning act...but do watch....this is really a neat act to watch.....I have seen hundreds and still to this day enjoy watching the spawning act.....

My female was like that. she'd swim under the nest, look up at it and you could see the disdain on her face. Eventually he built it to her satisfaction and she agreed to spawn with him. The fry are a week old today, so just tell your male he has to keep trying to please her, lol.

The bubblenest is even larger! I notice the male will sometimes just stop doing anything for a minute, before gtoing back to flaring and bubblenest building.
