Probably while I'm at work tomorrow.. little buggers. Actually the female is hiding less now... they may just spawn this evening. I hope so... I really want to get a lot of video with these spawns so it would be awesome to catch them in the act.

Came back with some plants (nearly picked up an Opaque PK with a bad eye... but they wouldn't give him to me) but no heater. They didn't have any of the brands I like so I'm going to borrow a heater from another tank temporarily.

I changed my mind and decided to set up the rubbermaid bin instead of a 10 gallon tank for the other pair for the simple reason that I want to fit both spawn tanks on one shelf. I'm going to use the money I saved doing that to get a decent light to put over both tanks.

I also ordered some frogbit and am about to go on AB to look for more plants.

Here are just a couple pics of the second pair. Picture quality sucks because of plastic bin.

Ugh!! Still no action!

Dan has decided he has ADHD and has two half made nests in opposite corners of the tanks, neither of which are good enough for spawning. I took a nest from one of my juvies and put it in on top of one of his nests to try to get him going. Still chasing but no fin damage yet.

Russell has a very nice little nest going but no spawning so far.

Could you maybe move one of his nests and join it with the other?
Either way, I bet they'll spawn for you soon!

The problem is he keeps chasing the female who keeps running into the nests trying to escape.

If they haven't spawned by the end of the day tomorrow I might take the female out and put Myrtle in there since she's a little more aggressive.

Yay congratulations! I want lots and lots of video LOL. I get my pair in 2 days, I cant wait. I've never seen wrapping before in person, so hopefully they do.

Good luck!

Only 1 egg so far (not picked up BTW) but I really think I caught the very beginning so they're still practicing.. they're not wrapping every time quite yet.

I have one vid of a practice wrap and I'll get more once they start producing eggs.

It was really cute. They wrapped like 5 times then the female went off and Dan was like "WTH

? Get back here!" and when and got her and brought her back to the nest.

They're being very gentle. :D

ETA..

AND... now they're wrapping under the other nest >.< I swear these fish have ADD
