I've tried getting my bristlenose to breed with no success so far. My female looks pretty prime and my male was chasing her around the breeding tank two days ago. She entered his cave but no eggs..
Now she won't go near him and all the chasing has stopped.
I've also tried her with another larger male but also no success.
Both males fanned their asses off for her too.
I've tried dropping water temp, colder water changes to drop it 2 degrees Celsius from 26c to 24c.
Also did this at the beginning of a storm.
There is always a fresh supply of bloodworm, zucchini, pumpkin, or veggie/algae wafer available to them.
I also have a piece of well used driftwood in there. And have added a little brackish water from another of my tanks with similar water conditions.
Ph is 6.7-6.9. Gh
5-6. ammonia 0
I'm doing 30% water changes every second day.
What am I doing wrong?
