OK, I let my female se my male again and guess what happened. She started flaring at him! They were both flaring at each other! :) Then she got horizontal stripes :( She has now recovered from her horizontal stripes and looks as normal as ever!

In general isolating them, then showing (preferably) non aggressive females would get them to flare (add their confidence/self esteem - for both male and female). When you think she is aggressive enough then show her a willing to breed male. She should respond to him.

Ah thanks for the advice! I might have to use that for my HMPK male.

Well, the male began to make part of a bubble nest! He only made a little and I tried to not encourage it as he is not in a breeding tank. The female is still getting horizontal stripes.

The male has stopped building his bubble nest and the sheet of paper is between them, but they are both trying to get through the glass to the other side!
