PostSubject: male breeding behaviour   Thu Jun 14, 2012 1:57 pm

hi i'm quite new to breeding bn's.
3 months ago my male and dominant female sucessfully had 50 wrigglers, then unfortuantly i had to move my tank which messed his self made cave. All day today he has been frantacly digging himself a new cave and now is happyly laying upside down with his tail poking out the entrance, but both females are now trying to get in there with him at the same time and he is chasing them both away. does this mean he just feels his cave isn't ready yet? And will he breed with both at the same time?
hope somebody could help me with this, as when they bred the first time was purely on there own and i didnt know they had till the little ones were swiming round the tank.

Cool. I also think one of mine is in the family way. I didn't see any activity though. But oen of the BN'S hasn't been out of the log for a good 3 hours or so. So here's hoping I've got little BN'S on the way as well.
