I don't go by the bubblenest as a sign of readiness, I have had too many successful spawns without nest being built until the male had eggs in his mouth...lol..... but I will look at your thread and pic...
Again, thank you for all your help! I feel much more confident.
Can I release the pair this afternoon? I know some people do it at night, some people don't, but I think the pair is ready- Spiri's bubblenest is really big and Hattie has breeding stripes.
