    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 but I will look at your thread and pic...

    Thank you! Yes, they look very ready to me... Would you mind looking at Spiri's bubblenest pics on my breeding thread? Does it look big enough? It's certainly very thick.

    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.
