I was worried about Graphite, he wasnt eating when i went to recondition him.

So, since Molotov was already conditiond, he and Amy are now in togeather. Molotov is a Butterfly Half moon Dragon scale Plakat (say that 10X fast).

He has started his bubble nest, and she is looking stripy (in a good way lol).

yees i will Mernin!

I do to...im getting frustrated.

Ya know what would be an AWESOME outcome of this spawn? (i know like a 1% chance of this) a Purple-Butterfly Double HM Dragon scale Plakat. O.o i wish. but the odds of that are slim to.. well none.

yes, i just have to cross all my digits and hope they spawn. Hes got his nest goin, she isnt Eggy, but she has hot-pink bars on her belly, and he is randomly chasing her.

I offer him an IAL, a Styrofoam cup,and a square of bubble wrap....and he makes his nest on top of the breeders mop.

is it a good sign if he goes from working on his bubble nest like mad to flaring and chasing after her because he saw her from across the tank, to her following him all over?

Im just a tad bit worried about his nest placement...iv seen her go under the nest to look at it, and she has to wiggle to get back out. He has to wiggle in, wiggle out, and wiggle along the sides....but i guess his instincts know more then i do so...

To make observing much easier, I don't normally use cups, floating plants, or whatever. Instead I cover the top of the tank/tub where I want him to nest with something dark while the rest is either left opened or covered with a rather see through plastic.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if they've spawned or not, specially if we can't see them. But usually if the females keeps returning to the nest, they haven't spawned. But if the female always keeps away or if the male always attacks her every time she comes close, they've probably spawned.
