I do have another female. She is about 3 times the size of the male and not breeding quality. I am confident the pair I have will figure it out though.

No, im not saying to breed her with him. I'm just saying to put her in there (SECLUDED) and with no way possible that the pair can reach her. When you put her in their you may see the female becoming more willing to the male and breeding. You may see a "jealous" behavior of the female. That is when the instincts come it. The female feels as she is an opponent and she must compete with her to get her generation through. Once you see that the female is becoming submissive, you must now take the female that you dont want to breed, out.

It has worked for myself and many other members a various amount of times. (This is if you feel impatient, or just want to experiment. I experimented with this method a lot and 9/10 it worked.

If you'd like, you can try this. I believe in your pair as well, Though if worse comes to worse, there are many methods (including this one) that would work.

Ah I see, that makes a lot of sense. I'll give them another day and then I will try that method. Thanks!

When my pair were flirting but doing nothing else, I took the female out for two days and then reintroduced her. That worked for me... They were both first timers so sometimes he hugged her a little too tight and she shot out like a cork out of a bottle! Really funny!
Anyway, whatever you do, I'm sure it will work out, after all, they ARE flirting with each other...that's a good start.

Still no eggs. Tried showing them the other female, she didn't even move.

I may try removing and then reintroducing the female... I am really shocked that she hasn't gotten with the program. I thought she would be raring to go - she was releasing eggs in my divided tank and I had to move her out of sight of the boys. She is huge with eggs too. I just don't get it.

Well separate them and recondition them for about 2 or 3 more days and allow her to gain her confidence and fins back for those two days.

Well, I did seperate them and I intended to reintroduce them after a short break, but some health problems cropped up... I was finally able to reintroduce them today. Things are going well so far, so fingers crossed it all works out this time!

Better luck this time. Sometimes it just takes longer than we'd like.
