My female's behavior is like how this website describes to summarize: http://www.bettysplendens.com/articl...?articleid=889
Last night, she built a bubble nest and I saw her laying eggs and putting them in there. There's a bunch of eggs in the nest now. So because I thought she was ready to mate, I put my red VT in there. She is displaying male-like behavior to him, and he tends to flair back in the normal behavior. There's a lot of plants and hiding spots in the tank, so if either one ever needs to duck out that is what they do.
The female seems to hang around her nest a lot. She always checks on its condition. The male doesn't seem to bother it or try to eat the eggs. Instead, he's just trying to court her. I had them conditioned together for more than two weeks because I said I wasn't going to try to breed again until I was done with college. I had them conditioned on blood worms and at times normal food to get other nutrients in them. I did this for perhaps 3-4 weeks.
He's nipping at her and I think he made her submissive and got rid of her male-behavior. She's hiding in this fake log. Oh well, that's enough reporting for now. I was constantly reporting what was going on while writing from what I could see. Any advice? Has this happened to you?
