My bolivian rams fell in love!
 
My rams, that hated each other are now mating!
I can see the females breeding tube hanging out.
This should be a lot of fun to watch.:lol:
I guess my high nitrates in the tap water has not spoiled the mood!

That's awesome! Any chance on getting some pics of the happy couple? :-)

My camera was not great for picture taking, but now it is not working at all.
I put new batteries in, the camera comes on for about 30sec, then goes dead. Kind of a bummer, I wanted to take some pictures of new brackish tank.
No eggs this morrning. she either has not had them yet or they became fish food. I watched them for about an hour yesterday, but they where making no real progress.

Once I noticed my ram's tube, she had the eggs that day, and her tube was gone the next, and usually they hang around where they laid the eggs and fight off other fish for several hours while she lays the eggs, if she laid them you probably would know (if you watch them a lot I guess)

edit: I lied, I can still see her tube today, I guess the best way is to watch and see where they're hanging out a lot, my male is still hovering right above the eggs right now, I think he has been since last night
