So all of the females look ready to pop and the breeding tubes are dropped, but sadly there is no sign of interest from the male, maybe he's defective

He is definitely not defective he has spawned with 2 females and is bouncing back and forth fertilizing and defending the 2 sites.

He's trying to kill me, I don't have enough space right now if any eggs make it.

The eggs are gone today(sweet) but apparently the male learned a tough lesson about messing with more than 1 female, he's a little beat up today.

Yeah I didn't really want to raise any fry yet anyway. I've been there done that with artificial hatching and I'm not real fond of it.

Exactly, it's more fun to see things the way nature intended anyway.
