SO, I think almost everyone who is a member on this site posted on my last thread about Breeding Impatience. I want to desperately start with a new clean slate.
Right now, I have my female in a 2.5 gallon tank being healed for her fins and resting. The male is still in his 10 gallon tank filled to about 5 inches of water. I am going to let the female rest until like March 1st or so. Then I am going to start conditioning both of them at the same time with their tanks side by side. After 2 weeks (middle of March), I am going to put the female inside the hurricane glass in the 10 gallon tank. I am going to let her in there for like 3 days minimum or until the male has finished a bubble nest. Then when I feel she is ready, vertical white stripes, belly full of eggs, doing a headstand on the bottom, I will release her to him. I know there will be some fin nipping, but I am pretty sure he's not supposed to go full throttle at her non-stop for 5 minutes like he has yesterday. I have read that it can take up to 2 days for them to finally embrace. But if he is going to go full throttle against her without any rest for either of them, I will know something is wrong correct?
So in short, I want to start this thread over and do it all right this time. I would really appreciate Turtles, Abby, MrVampire, and 1fish2fish's advice here. Anyone else can chime in as well, but please, please keep it legit and nice. I don't want another thread like the last one. Let's keep that in the past alright!
Thank you guys!
