Alright, well they just starting picking up again about an hour ago. I brought over another male to show Sim, and now he's picked up the pace on his nest. Also, just now the female went over and inspected the nest for a lot longer than he usally lets her. I think I'll give them a while longer, but if things don't work I have my backup female who has also been conditioned.

This may seem like a stupid question, but where can I get misquito larva? Like, if there isn't any standing water or such.

Thanks for your help OFL. (:

Good that they are back at it again....showing another male was a good idea.....I have had to place another male in a small QT and float in the spawning tank a few times to help get slow starters

Mosquito larva-you can use any container that holds water-add something organic like oak leaf, handful of dirt..etc.....dechlorinated water, rain water is best.....sit it in a shaded area and wait.....mosquito like-warm/hot-dirty-still water to lay eggs....usually within a week or, rinse under running water and feed...don't add any of the mosquito water to your tank....
