So far things are going well, the male is working on his bubble nest quite a bit and flirts with the female when he isn't building. :)

Unfortunately the male has, yet again, lost interest in the female and stopped working on his bubble nest so all of the bubbles have popped. So, I took the female out and if the male perks up by tonight then I'll try putting a different female into the cylinder and see how that goes. I'll keep you all updated on their status.

IME, such a male isn't healthy enough. IMO it's not because he lost interest but because he got too tired. Even if he spawned, he wouldn't be able to care for the eggs/fry properly.

If he does the same thing with a different female, I suggest you replace him with another male or wait until he is truly healthy.

Ya, I figured if he didn't show interest in another female then I am going to take him out and let him rest for a week or two and then recondition again. The thing is, he will build bubble nests in his container, large ones too, but in the bucket he gets tired or something and stops building.
I have other pairs that I am conditioning now so I'll try one of them in the bucket if the male doesn't perk up tonight.

He didn't seem to perk up at all since I took the female out so I put him back into his container and will recondition the female and a blue crowntail male that I have and try breeding them in a couple of weeks.

I'll start a new thread once I start breeding that pair so no need to follow this one anymore.
