Giving the old boy a rest won't hurt. Would be a bonus if the young boy spawns so let him try IMO. Even tho I don't know the age of my albino longfins they looked too young to spawn but still did. Iv never had males fan unless they are ready to spawn so he could be...

If your young male is over 5cms in length then he probably mature enough to breed, his fanning sounds like he is ready.

I reckon that if they are fanning it means they are ready to give it a try Smile

younger males can take a few tries to get it right but once they do they can be prolific little buggers!!
