Setting up the tank and introducing the first pair tonight

Dan X Venus (Formerly #49):

Set up: 5 gallon about 1/2 filled. Roughly 3 IAL, some guppy grass, java moss, 50 watt heater, lid for nest site.

Right now I have the pair in a divided Lee's Betta keeper letting them start flirting... both are being quite responsive Just waiting for the tank to heat up then I'll introduce them, female in a plastic pet store cup.

Venus is being very submissive. Almost immediately she barred up and put her head down. I think a submissive female will be a good match for Dan.

Pics coming soon... I hope they spawn tomorrow because I'm off but more than likely it'll be the next day.


The next pair is going to be...

Russell x Katie(formerly #51):

Set up will be a 10 gallon filled to about 5 inches. Anarchis and whatever other plants I can find locally. 50w heater and IAL.

I'll set up that tank and introduce them either tomorrow or Monday.

I introduced the first pair about 30 mins ago. Something told me to go ahead and release the female and boy am I glad I did. She immediately went to the potential nest site and was nudging him. She's totally ready. Dan's a little clueless still.

They swam around together for about 15 minutes and now Dan's decided he doesn't like her and is chasing her around. She's still barred up and not clamped so I'm not worried about it. I'm turning the lights out pretty soon so they'll calm down after that.

Pics uploading now... I'll post them in about 10 mins

Russell x Katie











I thought I got video of them but apparently I didnt Oh well.. I'll get some tomorrow. They're definitely going to need longer jar time and more hides because they're both aggressive... not a bad thing though.
