Breeding impatience

Hey guys
SO, most of you know how I got the female to mate with my male Leon. anyways, I got her today in the mail and she is very very pretty. She has the white breeding dot and somewhat vertical stripes (dont really know what they are), but I know she is ready to breed. Most of you said wait a little while before I breed her, but I am getting really impatient and I want to put her in the spawning tank. She seems just as healthy as my male, and I know the seller took very good care of her and got her ready for breeding. Is it alright if I put her in the spawning tank like this weekend?

shes just been through the stress of shipping, she may look healthy but the stripes are probably from stress. be reasonable, breeding takes a LOT out of your fish would you like to spend all the money getting her to you toss her in and have her die?
Two weeks AT YOUR PLACE for conditioning then at least three days next to each other (still seperate) before you put them together

i know thats the minimum, i introduced her next to the tank and they are both going wild. is it safe to take her away now or is it too late.

you can leave them or move them, id say move them (less stress) you need to think it through properly before leaping into it.other wise your just pouring your money down the drain

i just wanted to see what they would do and they are going nuts, they really want to mate. is it too late to take her away? i just wanted to give Leon and incentive on building a bubble nest because hes been lazy and doing nothing lately. will he build his nest if i take her away? she really seems healthy, she wont die. the seller i bought it from took very good care of her before he sent. and she only spent 2 days inside a box, no big deal...

Do you have food for the fry ready? The time to make all the waterchanges? Two days shipping isnt a big deal to you, but it is to the fish...

hey in the end you dont need to listen to advice from anyone you want to risk either not being ready go for it. my male flares at everything even the snails so he could just be being territorial.

no im pretty sure he really liked that female
but i took her out because i think she was a bit stressed i guess and i figured it would be better if i had waited. i will put her in this weekend i think depending on how i think she is. im setting up the food now and it should be ready by tomorrow. hatching baby brine shrimp in an automatic feeder. hopefully i didnt depress them too much taking them out from eachother. my male really misses her and the femael is just moping around. this is better than them being so active at eachother right?
