    well, i have had them in a seperated tank for a few weeks now.....they never tried to fight and the male cleared a spot in the gravel, which seems to be an act of breeding......well, i updated the tank to a 100 gallon and put the male into it monday night. then i put the female in and watched them for a few minutes and they seemed to be interested in eachother, but i had to take her back out for the night because i had school the next day and didnt have time to watch them and make sure no fight happens.....today i am going to put the female back into the tank and watch what happens. Right now, the tank has a big clay bowl on the bottom for them to lay eggs in, if it comes to that. By the way, the 2 flowerhorn i am trying to breed are a male Blue Dragon ZZ, and a female Red Shock Kamfa.

    Keep me posted on how the breeding is going. The male should be bigger than the female at all times the females become extremely aggressive during spawning and might attack the male.(this happend when i tried one time) Also, you want to buy a large, sturdy, clear divider. Keep them separated while your not there and then let them pair up that way. If they aren't overly aggressive with each other, you may have a pair, the eggs are laid, fertilized, and hatch..etc..etc good luck my friend. -tl
