Question Female = Bubble Nest?

I started noticing one of my females was building a bubble nest. I know it is a female because I can see the egg spot. I have been conditioning for the past two weeks because i planned on breeding her soon but would it be a bad idea?

I have seen other people talk of their females building bubble nest and taking half of the eggs for a clutch and actually caring for them on her own while the male cared for the other half of the eggs.

So what do you all think? Should I still breed her, or should I just call it off?

That shouldn't affect the breeding, IMO... go for it.

... its like a girlfriend coming in wearing the stetson, button flannel shirt and boots.

Can she see the boy? "Come make a nest for me!"

My sorority has a two inch air gap to the back of the boy tank (single male, lots of plants and little tetra) and I get to see ALL sorts of teasing.

Caught Cherries and Blue mating dancing at each other. The flaring but curved and nose down twining bit. Goat's gotten nice and hefty coming on towards 10 months.
