It's official! Walter x Velvet VT Spawn Log

I know I said the other one would be a log but it turned out to be more of a Q&A of pre-spawning things so here's the official one :D
Well I don't have eggs yet but I'm sure they're on their way. Within a half hour or releasing the female they had embraced twice! It's been about an hour now. They're still just practicing but they seem to be getting it down. Although Walter gets mad if she's not under the bubble nest :/ Velvet is very submissive and does her little wiggle every time he comes near. She has come up to the bubble nest and rubbed him but he's not a mushy bear, yet, so every once in a while he chases her. She's got some rips in her fins and I saw one scale fall but I'm not to worried yet. At the moment Velvet is hiding and Walter is working on the bubble nest. I have to be to work in an hour, but I think they'll be ok at this point.

Oh, on your other thread you said something about a dumbo gene. What is that?

I temporarily removed the snails seeing how the eggs are on the bottom. I'll put them back in after the hatch

I just got home from work and it looks like the deed is done already :o Velvet is staying far away and pretty much sticking to one corner. Walter is endlessly tending the nest. At first I didn't see any eggs but when He was rearranging I saw two clumps of 4-5 each, and then he sucked both of them up and spit them back into the nest

She's still got eggs, and drops some every once in a while, but Walter wont let her any where near the nest so I took her out.
