Ok Day 3, the male has always been interested in the female, trying oh so hard to impress her. The female is still ignoring him. I tried removing her for a few hours and putting her back. Same thing happens. The male gets all excited trying to woo her to the bubble nest and she just chills/runs away. Maybe she wasn't ready to breed with him. >_< I'm about ready to just start conditioning another pair.

Wow that's frustrating! But you have a LOVELY DT duo to pair next right?

Ha Ha!

Eh keep trying. Somethings gotta give. Maybe she will have a change of heart? :)

I am afraid I may have a similar problem with my MG pair. Well maybe not similar It's the male who has a problem. He is more interested in flirting with and building a HUGE bubble nest for my platinum butterfly....except he is a male. *sigh*. If I hear one more gay fish comment from my hubby....well....

Lol don't worry, he's prob just threatened by the platinum guy and building a nest to feel better about himself. My males in the divided did that the first few days hah.

You have to be patient. Trust me i know how frustrating it can be to want them to spawn so bad. Its not easy just to see them not spawn for so many hours. Have they even come close to being under the nest together?

Oh and I want the tri-color dt male to regain some of his finnage before I spawn them. He bit it during transit...

They came close so many times the first day I had them both out. At least 5 times. The second day they came close once. Today, nada. The male has stopped adding to the bubble nest and now it's falling apart lol

Oh. I see. I have had this happen MANY times before all you would have to do is encourage them to spawn by adding maybe an indian almond leaf or you can get water conditioner, which has (IAL) in it.
