Talking Breeding log!!!!!!

Alright! So this is my first ever by myself breeding attempt! The setup is as follows: A 4 gallon sterilte container with a heater. Silk plants for the girlie to hide in and half a styrofoam cup for the bubblenest!

I know it seems small but i did post a question thread and MrVampire told me that he used this method a lot so im gonna take his word for it. :)

Pics of the mommy and daddy soon! (Both are currently unamed)

I would raise the temperature to 80* and see if that helps to keep the bubbles from popping.
