Unless he is really tearing her up, let it go, the process can take up to 3 days. I took one female out because she was so scared she was trying to fly up the glass! If her fear is just swimming and hiding, don't worry about it too much, that is normal.

How big is your tank.
Is there a lot of hiding spot away from the male bubble nest

My spawn tank is a 10gal. Got a hideout, a bushy fake plant, some anacharis and IAL, a sponge filter, heater, thermometer, and 1/2 of a foam cup. My girl isn't having any problems hiding... its just the male is really good at seeking ;) I have a 17gal tub container I may use, just to give them more area to stretch across. Eh?

I did take her out tho... I don't think she's as ready as she made me think. Maybe I'm just being overly panicy? She looked super freaked out and my guy wasn't paying very much attention to building up the nest.
Maybe I acted too soon, idk... but I felt like no progress was being made.
I think I'm going to condition a bit more, give them time to rest, then try again in a few days. Oooorr maybe I'll just start conditioning a different pair. I dunnos.
Feeling a little discouraged, in general.

*pouts*

Random Q -- would it do me any good to let the female swim around in the spawn tank, alone, for a bit?? Just so she can find her way around without being stalked? Thhheen take her out, put my male back in, and re-jar her in the tank?
Lol I'm thinking too hard... or not enough!

Female is in the tank (jarred) again. Male is showing off a lot more and working on his nest more persistantly. Fem is flaring and looking very interested. Maybe she did need a lil timeout afterall!
I am planning on keeping her jarred til tomorrow afternoon... depending on how they are behaving.
I'll update the log then... good nite.
:]

If the male already have the nest.
Plus the female have a lot of hiding spot.
I'll just let the female roam free.
Check on her every so hour.
If the female is to badly beat before breeding.
I'll just take her out.
