Yeah that was in his temp tank upon arrival. No rocks! I will try to get a video of this! It's amazing to see. They have a little trouble wrapping because he's so much bigger, but they are working hard together and picking up eggs together.

The male has been very gentle with her, only a few nips at her anal fin and she took a bite outta him too. After a few hours they started embracing and now we have eggs! I'm a happy girl!

They were looking pretty tired before I left for work earlier so I left a few bloodworms under the nest for them, they're all gone now, maybe that helped perk them up. This pair is too funny. They're still flaring at each other until the second before they embrace. Silly :)

Yeah I have had this tank set up for over a month with live plants in it, and two others with moss getting set up tomorrow so by the time I need to split the spawn they'll be good too.

Don't worry, I did my research! :)

I spawned them in a regular rectangular 10 gallon tank filled about 3/5ths of the way and I have two other 10 gallon tanks for growout/separation if need be.

I think I am going to pull the female even though she has more eggs. She's stopped going to the nest and the male is chasing her away. I'll give it a few more hours.

Yeah he's only paying attention to the nest and she's not coming out anymore. She's got a good hiding spot, I can't find her. Neither can he. I'm ready with my net and a tank for her.
