That was QUICK!
PH above 8
I bought a geman female about 2 weeks ago or less, went in and bought a male 4 days ago. When I introduced him into the tank around 2 in the afternoon he went straight to her. The same evening they started cleaning a rock, they have done this for 3 days now, tonight they dropped that site and went to a place where I added more plants, she had her eggs on the slate wall, he is doing his fert on them. I am very very surprised it happend this quick, I am not set up for this at all. I own a number of rams now, yesterday i went to the lfs and saw a male just beating up on another apisto in the tank, after looking more in depth I see he is protecting his mate who is cleaning an area to drop, I quickly bought both since the store didn't seem to care what was going on in the tank. They worked on cleaning their own site but then the male met the other female who is paired up and took interest in her vs the one he already was hooked up with. Now I feel tricked lol, I wanted two breeding pair and now I have one looking for a threesome. Let me get back on track lol, I own 3 gbr, 2 bolivian rams, 4 golds and one electric blue, I have to say the GOLDS by far are my fav, they just are a great fish to watch, very social with me , I am sure most of you understand what that means, they swim around alot, no hiding and very active. The GBR seem to hide alot and so does the electric, the bolivian male is mean so I got him a female, that has calmed him down some. I had planned to raise these to sell them off, my sons new hobby for his own income. He left for Texas yesterday afternoon to visit his gma, and he didn't get to see this, I am bummed. I think they will be good parents, but you never know it may take a few passes to get it right, i intend to leave this batch in the tank and see how it goes, once free swimming I may or may not move them to a new tank or I might just let them raise them.
Thanks for reading my long rant, I am just SUPER excited.
