Well he is in the tank, and she is in her vase in the tank. Now it is time to watch and see how they do I will have some pictures of this stage up soon.

Hopefully they are fast spawners. Today will be the second day of my red pair. The male built a pretty good bubblenest under the IAL and the female is still hiding. Thankfully he doesnt go for her body with nips but her fins are not too bad either. He has been trying to LURE her since yesterday. So he is ready and she is still scared.

I could see that he gets frustrated with her when she ignores him and he nips her, then he tries to flare and he is constantly doing the "Betta Dance." My favorite part!

He has started to blow a bubble nest now.
He blows a few bubbles, then swims off to look at her in the vase, then swims around the tank for awhile. He watched her and watches and shows off, then ignore her as she ignores him. Then he blows a few more bubbles then foes it again.
I will watch it for another how see if she is showing interest. If she does I will release her. If she doesn't I will leave it over night.

I usually leave her over night until to give him a chance not to get too excited and dont work on the bubblenest, but after that day if he doesnt have a bubblenest STILL, I release her anyway.

So Quetzalcoatl's IAL sunk over night...Leaving me with a boy with no bubblenest and far too concerned about breakfast for him to care.
I have feed both of the pair, and put in two new IAL to float, leaving the one on the bottom. Maybe he will begin to nest again while I am go to town for a bit. If there is a next or not, I will be placing her in the tank this midmorning/early afternoon.

So they are both in the tank, he is busy flaring and chasing her. She just swims away, but he is being surprisingly gentle. He has not nipped her once, just chases and flares. Then takes a break to blow a bubble in his still not there bubble nest -__-.
But over all it is amazingly gentle in the tank.

Prepare for a pic spam in the next post

So Today they embraced. I have eggs, they are spawning like made, I must have over a hundred eggs already.
I had to do a quick action and remove the snails from the tank, because all 3 were headed straight for the spawn site. My pair didn't care though, they are still spawning and happy.
This is so exciting my first spawn is a success so far.
Pictures and videos to come.

Wow your camera is really cool! I love the pairs colors! And I can't wait til mine get to the age of developing their color! I forgot how exciting this is! Both our pairs spawned on the same day! Probably it the same time, but definitely on the same day! I will be checking tomorrow or later around this time to see for wrigglers!
