Ok so it's day 2... the female is being crazy! She is barring and checking out the nest, but then will swim to the other side of the tank and just chill. The male gave up trying to impress her. For the first day he alternating between flaring and bubble nest building... don't know if I should just keep them in there, try anything different, or what... The female isn't being chased too much and doesn't have any damage, so that's good!

No this is good, now by tomorrow or sunday they will definitely have a spawn because it takes about 3-4days tops. Good luck!

Thanks for the encouragement! I figured since there aren't any injuries or furious chasing I could get away with having them together for a few days :)

Gosh I figured it'd be so easy cuz everyone shows successful spawns all the time! This couple seems so bored of each other though hah

Well for experienced breeders its very easy to spawn them but not very easy to raise the fry.

It fluctuates between 78-80 degrees. It's set at 80 though.

Try raising the temp to about 82-84. You might want to remove her overnight then placing her back in.

Alright I'll try that. It'd at least get her to pay attention to the male again. I swear they could peacefully live in a tank together the way they're acting now! Haha.
