Question Fastest Spawn?

out of curiosity (and not as a potential breeder) what was your fastest spawn from first introduction to wrapping under the nest?

I've only done one spawn, and I introduce through a breeding cage. If you count that then 3 days, if you don't then 1 hour.

I have had spawns start the second the breeders were added to the spawning tank.....and the longest took about 2 weeks....

In one of my outside spawns in the 5gal buckets I use-teaming with live food-mainly mosquito larva-the two females I placed in the bucket fed on the larva for 2 days and then I placed the male (he had been feeding on larva too)-the second he hit the water the females demanded to spawn....and they did within 30min.....one right after the other for several hours....massive amount of eggs.....he didn't even build a bubble nest until the spawning was completed-he just let the eggs float at first......here are some pics and the story......
