The marble would be a perfect breeding male. He's 100% ready to go... too bad he isn't the male I'm using. :P

The DS male is doing well though. He's only 4 months, so he's still working out his hormones I guess. :P

Lady Fish and DS Male will be going getting a big feast tonight and then they will hopefully go into the spawn tank either tonight or tomorrow. It will be the first time for both of them (male is 4 months, female is 8) so I imagine they will take some time to figure things out. Both of them seem ready though.

I AM SO EXCITED.

Well! Things did not go as planned. Thankfully it's just a minor set back, nothing major. All it really means is a bit more time to condition. I was needed at the stable I work at, so didn't get to set everything up and get them to spawn.

My mother decided she did not want the spawn tank in our originally agreed upon spot, so i had to reshuffle my whole game plan. It is now crammed next to my 20g divided. the 20g basically had to be emptied in order to move it. So that took a while.

I'll probably be spawning on Monday now...

They're in the same tank. She escaped the cup I had her contained in, so they're both in together.

He has not yet started working on a bubblenest... they've only been together for about an hour though, so I'm not worried.

There has been lots of chasing and flaring, a few nips. Her tail has some chunks out of it.

Fingers crossed...

Good luck...I've heard that having them together from the start works, as long as their compatable. Bubblenests often come later.

Everything is going well. I left them together overnight and I was pretty worried about the female. But she is still alive this morning: a few more but nothing dramatic.

He is working on his nest while she hides in the big fake plant I have. Occasionally he will spot her and give chase. He is more aggressive then I had anticipated, but he is a plakat so I'm not too surprised.

I am off to go take care of my horses now - I will be back tonight with another update and hopefully some pictures.
