Wow this is pretty exciting! Can you take pictures of them? I would love to see them:). The pair is beautiful so I can just imagine what the are going to look like! Speaking of the pair, where did you get them?

How long did it take until after they started? An hour-two?

it might take him a little while to figure it out. for the first several embraces my male just sat at the nest or tried to convince her to come back to it while she wandered around eating the eggs. he did eventually figure out what he was supposed to do and did a great job after that

well this attempt was a failure, they produced eggs and the male placed them in the nest but then over the course of the day destroyed the nest and ate the eggs.

just my luck, ill be trying my second attempt later this week

AWWW, I'm so sorry.
We all have disappointments like that, I lost a spawn I was really looking foreward to. I had a male and several females from Martinismommy, one week after spawning, all the fry just disappeared, then the male died. Just keep trying, you will suceed if you just don't give up.
