She is starting to flare at him more. I am going to purchase IAL for my tank and some more plants for them.

Should I condition them longer now or still let nature take its course? It's been 4 days since I let her out. She has gotten pump since Thursday. My male is kind of lazy now. He blows one bubble pops it and sits on the top of the tank with his nose up. Is he ok? When she comes near he will chase and flare at her and she will flare back, then he will go back to his sort of nest.

he doesn't seem interested anymore? maybe you should try putting a mirror to him, maybe seeing another male will put his mating instincts into gear

does he look weak? thats not a good sign, if he's weak already he won't be able to be a good father

heh heh maybe your female is the man xDD Silly girl. Mine flared only twice when the male pissed her off... she had enough that day, and she made it clear, and he knew it!! Other than that she is soooooooooog gentle. was he doing okay during conditioning? did he look under the weather at all?
