Not sure everyone understands... the first two pairs WILL be placed together for a spawning attempt. The third pair is the only one that is in question.
For the third pair, I decided to give the steel blue butterfly male (from post #16) a chance. He is significantly smaller than the blue female, so it may not work out. If it does not work out, then I will resort to a backup male.
I placed all three pairs in the spawning tanks this evening, with the females in lamp chimneys. The blue female was barred up within 15 minutes. I hope to release the females tomorrow afternoon.
