paradise fish

Hi Everyone!

I am new to this so excuse me if I don't do everything like I am supposed to.

I currently have five aquariums. In one of them it is a breeding tank (10 gal) and I have a male and female paradise fish. Over a month ago I successfully spawned them.

Now I am trying again as she is swollen with eggs and he seems ready to go.

He (Pacer) has made a very large bubblenest. She (Pacette) just swims back and forth and eats. Pacer alternately tries to get her under the nest and then chases her away the rest of the time. This has been going on for three days and he must be tired as he is constantly blowing bubbles and fixing his nest. She could care less. They have a lower water and warmth in the tank.

What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions for me?

Thanks, Maggie3

I moved your thread to the fw breeding forum, hopefully you'll get more response here.
