Well, it happens. Sometimes they just aren't interested, or the blind date isn't all that hot, hehe.

Yeah, I guess. I wouldn't be overly impressed if someone dragged me out of bed and chucked me in a hotel room with a random bloke who keep coming back to see if we had made babies yet, tbh! Can't expect the fish to be any different. :P

My TradPk has been waiting for me to throw a female at him for months. Things progressing quickly in that tank now! :D

I also have permission to get a 5gallon spawn bucket if doing this spawn goes well and I can source homes for the fry. Might be allowed a second growout too! XD So may not have to wait 3-4months for the retry of this spawn. :P

Exciting!

Is it common to cover them with a blanket even during the day?

I felt I had to, as he kept getting distracted by whatever was going on outside the tank. XD Fool. I have eggs from the other pair though!

Well, this spawn will not be being repeated, doing my nightly feed and I have, sadly, lost my female. Not pale, not striped, not bloated.... just gone. She was behind the sponge filter... maybe she was tired and got stuck there, IDK. She was fine this morning, but I kept the light off most of today as it is shared between hers and Kuros tanks, and I thought they could both use some quiet time. SIP Brangwen.
