Ilana and George:
I went ahead and removed Ilana, and we’re going to try Peaches next. I’m waiting for Sav to get home before we do this, since its her fish, heh. But seriously, we left them together over night and everything, and they still hadn’t done anything. She just hid in a corner of leaves and he didn’t force her to come out. When I put her in his sight, he showed off instead of chasing her off, so clearly they hadn’t gotten it on yet.
Hopefully Peaches will be more excited about this, his bubble nest is Huge!!
Vivian and Conny:
I’m pretty sure they’d started before we all woke up and watched them, but we caught the last two hours of them mating. Haha, I was actually on the phone with another fish breeder when they finished and Conny started chasing her off! Geeze, trying to juggle my cell, the next, and the clean cup for Vivian was crazy. But I got her out! Its pretty interesting, she didn’t take any fin damage as far as I can tell!!
Now Conny is diligently protecting his precious bubble nest. There were a lot of eggs! We shall see if there is any success with these two.
Janice and Cindy:
Cindy’s nest is still pretty disconnected… Maybe we’ll try them later? But seriously, his nest has nothing on the other two! Which is why we tried them first… And he needs a water change, I figure we can do that first…
