Batch 2- the breeding log for my next attepmt

Post by debnel on 6/10/2012, 15:47



These are the two I am hoping to breed.
Male is more than ready & female showing bars. Both are bright blue with dark bodies. Male has very impressive fins.
They like each other which is a help. Had to separate them other day as they were trying to go for it in main tank.
Just need male to build bubble nest in new tank & will start things rolling again.

oh i have such a clever girl!
but such a stupid boy!
let female out and male chased her a good bit but seemed more interested in playing with his bubbles.
after a while she got bored and started prodding him. he got the idea after a while and they mated a few times. he ignored all the eggs and let them fall to the tank floor. after about half an hour of quite a few matings (FLOOR COVERED IN EGGS!)
the female went round picked a load up and blew them into the nest. def did not eat them as i saw them leave her mouth.
male has no clue whatsoever. still ignoring all the eggs. just blowing bloody bubbles!
lets hope the female manages to get enough up there and that he bucks his ideas up soon or i have no chance with this batch.

They've been at it an hour & half now. So pleased I got to see it this time. She is still releasing lots of eggs. He has sorted himself out & is no fanatically collecting eggs!
Looking good!

Female at top male diving for eggs.

I can't see much in the way of eggs currently. Hope he hasn't eaten but they could be hidden in the extra deep bubble nest. He was obsessed with adding more & more bubbles even while female was trying to get him to mate.
