last couple of days I have has a bubble nest in my female sorority tank. It is a well developed nest and not just air bubbles. Anyone heard of this or any idea why?
Thanks. I will try the filter on a higher setting and see if it helps. She has also been aggressive over the last couple of days, guarding the nest. I’m now no longer 100% sure she is female. Small possibility that it could be a short fin male. I got them all young and it’s only recently her aggression has risen and the nest building startedI once had a sponge filter stop working in one of my female tanks. This female often shows breeding bars as well. When the filter stopped she built her own bubble nest and filled it with eggs. I removed the nest and fixed the filter. The surface agitation keeps her from making more nests. My female is alone. No tank mates. If you’re absolutely sure you don’t have an accidental male in there as well lol. The eggs won’t hatch and the females will eat them. To save your females the bloating from over eating or the stress of a female possibly guarding the nest from the others I recommend removing the nest/eggs and adjusting your filtration to cause more movement on the surface of the water.
If you feel comfortable posting pictures we can probably help you determine if the nest maker is male or female.
