    If they look ready I would release, I don't have special times to release because I release them at the same time in the spawning tank and let nature and

    Hi OFL,
    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.

    I don't think it is that much if you are talking on a monthly basis..if I had to guess..I would say a 50w heater on 24/7/365 would be closer to $1-2 a year to run....

    I have no idea how much it cost to run a have average billing and so my electric is the same amount every month.....but I wouldn't think it would be very much.

    that that you mention it... he could of been moving the eggs because he was moving beyween nest but i thought he was just eating any left over eggs from the old nest.
    i will try again in a week or two. this is a bit of topic but i know you have many tanks just like me. how much does it cost to run a heater?

    Thats too bad.....are you sure he didn't just move the eggs?...I have a male that does that with every spawn....he like one spot to spawn and one spot usually in the middle of the tank that he want his nest and eggs.
    I spawn females that are going into their 3rd year and have not had a problem with them
    Good luck with your next spawn....

    do you remeber when i messaged you a while back about my first spawn?well the father was a egg eater. :( he trashed the nest with the remaining eggs in and started a new nest on the other side of the tank. i think the eggs were unfertile because the female was about 1 and a half. so im hoping to get a new female soon and try again soon.

    Awesome and you don't have to have big tanks to keep the natural planted tanks, I have some 1g, 2g and 3g NPT that are pretty nice and no added filter needed...just
