Just went to check on them: She's still hiding but her breeding stripes have darkened.. She's missing a lot of her tail and anal fin and a scale. :( Zuko is an abusive bf!

I'm sure! They're just waiting for me to fall asleep to do their thing XD
Did Drake cause a lot of damage to your girl?

Yes a bit actually.. a quarter of her tail fin bitten off all the way down to her body.. and a couple scales on both sides of her face so it looks as if she was scratched. I think he also tried to nip her eye.. it was swollen when I took her out but thankfully it is back to normal now. She's with her sisters (got them from petsmart I call them my little tripplets lol)

They sure can! And they heal quickly too! I was so scared when I saw her eye swollen.. I almost went and got my smaller tank out to put her in next to my bed to keep a closer eye on her.. But I know she would be happier with her sisters :)

I'm definitely getting her into qt after this! My sorority is all different girls and she's the alpha, I don't wan her to be beat up just because she's weak right now. :( How long did your couple take to figure it out?

Funny you ask that.. a half hour after I released her they did a lot of "practice" wraps. Or at least thats what I call them since I did not see any eggs fall.. After that I just left her in over night and went to bed then took her out in the morning since:

1) I couldnt handel letting her get damaged even more
2) he was guarding the nest, even flareing at me O_o

So I guess around 12 hours probably?
