The tank has been kep covered, so I am only checking a few times a day and they are not disturbed too much.
So, checked three times today:
09:00-09:30 - 12 hrs for the male being in. Seems too busy exploring the tank for the most part, occassionally coming back to display for the female.
12:00-13:00 - Female barring for male, male responding, so female was released to gauge the reaction.
Male responded well, wriggling, flaring, and chasing. If she succesfully hid, he would look for around a minute, by the he was normally up the opposite end of the tank and seemed to forget the female until he chanced on her again, or she came looking for him. Is this a bad sign?
She is following him, barring, cautiously watching him from behind the cambomba, and occassionally chasing him when he dances for her.
13:30 - 20:00 - checking regularly and discreetly (once an hour, one corner of cover is removed to check they are both not too badly hurt), but he seems to have lost interest to a point. I have rejarred the girl, divided the tank, as he still seemed to be getting so caught up in himself elsewhere he forgot a female was around. He is still displaying, sitting under his cup for nesting, but no nest and he is slightly clamped...??
