Well when your as pretty as she is you know you've got options LOL

Thanks Monroe I've had that name rolling around in my head since I first decided I wanted to breed... finally decided to start using it.

Update! The male built a massive bubblenest overnight. However, the female seemed to become disinterested. The male builds, rounds her up, then ignores her once she's under the nest. She eventually gets bored and then swims away..

Any ideas for next steps? Or just continue to observe :)

Just keep it going. Dan and Venus were together for like 3 or 4 days before they finally spawned. They were showing similar behavior patterns.. checking out the nest but not really an spawning activity. Dan was much more aggressive than your guy though.. she was checking out the nest but he was chasing her off.

Lol ok well I figured it'd be best to let them be. No fin damage, but for a while there the male was as aggressive as the female. Now they've both cooled down lol. I'm sure it'll pick back up soon!

My first pair also took 3 days to spawn. Both were left with badly damaged fins.
Now I think I have my method of getting them to spawn quickly... but I cannot call it succesfull until I try at least once more :D
Can't wait to hear they've spawned!

Woohoo! I went to check on the couple this morning and they were attempting to embrace! It still looks like they're trying to figure out how to do it, but they're just as aggressive as they were the first day (which I love)!

AHHH they're embracing (I'll post vid soon)! However, the female isn't releasing any eggs just yet, hopefully soon! They're so sloppy with their embracing and have ruined a significant portion of the bubblenest hahah. YEY!

LOL.. yeah it takes them a while to get it right. Dan and Venus embraced for like an hour before they started really producing eggs... they also took a break a couple times XD
