Thanks! I had to remove the female, she is actually doing great in her little hospital tank. The other female is also already showing some damage although not near what the other female endured. The male is still blowing his nest up like crazy and it shocks me he is so aggressive if he is receptive to spawning. Another breeder friend of mine told me that dragons are hard to spawn because of the aggression. Can anyone else offer advice on this as I have never spawned dragons yet.

Thanks! I am still so sad ..... He is so mean Here is a video of how he acts...

This is when I had her separated....

And here is after I put her in

He is still bubble nesting like crazy he just attacks when he comes to look for her. All of my other males rarely attack and mostly just show off....Is it a dragon thing or am I putting them together too soon? The nest seems pretty big....

Just from my experiences, I've found the darker the water with IAL and shallower the less they fight and the more they work on spawning. Probably because the line of sight is disrupted and they can't see each other as often and with the shallow water the plants take up more room.

Ok I will try taking some water out if this doesn't work thanks! I have oak leaves but they do take some time to release the tannins so that's probably why it's not so dark yet. Ill go add more

OK, so they are spawning but I am not happy The male is not picking up any eggs he is not even letting the female pick up any. He is just spawning one after the other after the other...... Anyone seen this before?

He is determined to make this as difficult as possible isn't he? Hmm... wait and see if he picks them up when they're done spawning.
