Ok. So food for fry is all set, just waiting for it to arrive. I have BBS (I will hatch myself when needed), microwroms culture coming, vinegar eels culture coming, freeze dired black worms coming and I have Frozen blood worms, pellets and flake. Lots of variety..
I will attach a photo of my tank soon. Let everyone see the spawning tank

Thanks MrVampire but I have the 13L all set up so I'll let it atm...
Mr.H and Miss Piggy have been in together now for about 22hours. Nothing has yet happened. He has fully reconstructed his bubblenest (which looks AWSOME)... Miss piggy is hiding but I can see her and she still has her breeding stripes. Every now and then H will look for her, do a dance and go back to the nest. I am sick of waiting. Do I just give it longer?
I can't take photos today as there is a bad glare..

Ok... So my female seems to know what she is doing.. She is under the nest waiting for H to embrace her.... She is head down and has her breeding stripes. H on the other hand seems to be a bit confused as to waht to do know. The bubble nest covers one half of the tanks surface (he's done an awsome job).. He swims over to Miss piggy wiggles and jiggles, dances around then swims around the entire outside of the tank.. I have been watching him do the same thing for 4 hours just this morning... Will he eventually figure out what to do? It's now day 3 and he still hasn't figured it out... :$

If she still has her breeding stripes and he is still showing signs of wanting to spawn I would give them a bit more time.

Jut a question though, it's hard to say by the pics (since they can sometimes be different sizes than they appear) is the female bigger than the male? If the female is bigger than the male (body not fins) then that could cause a problem. If not then they will probably catch on soon :) Good luck!

Yeah she still has her breeding stripes and he is CONSTANTLY dances around at her...
She is about the same size as him, I think maybe just a tiny bit smaller.
