Ugh! I have been trying to breed my best female to one of my guys and I think she knows she's special because she won't give in.
They have been together for 4 days and the male has a huge bubblenest. She will come chek it out but run off when the male approaches.
I've never had a female give the male such a hard time.
My male has some shredding on his caudal and a small hole on his dorsal... of course I'm freaking out because the damage he has now is easily fixable but if she takes a chunck out of his tail it will take months to heal... and he's one of my best males!
A few minutes ago I was ready to take him out and place him in the hospital tank but I think I might give them until the end of the day, if nothing happens today then it's healing and afterwards, reconditioning time.
I would try another pair but I really haven't thought of an alternate since I was so set on breeding this one. I have plenty of siblings to mix and match but I wanted THIS pair!!!!
Who says this gets easier with experience??
