    Default Female ovulating, but rejects males.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My 1 1/2 year old female is ovulating, but she has rejected both of the males I have tried to pair her. I have done some reading here and there and followed the advice of a friend and put one of the males hides and some of his substrate in her tank. I tried again after a week with the one male but no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Do you mean that she bites him or that he chases her and she runs away? As long as no one is getting hurt (and there is a part to mating that looks like someone's getting hurt because the male bites the female to hold her in place) she may just need some time to come around to it. If you feel it's safe, leave them together for 3 days (unless you've already tried that). Otherwise, try again in a few weeks. Worst case, you may just not have a receptive female. It does happen sometimes.

    Yes, sorry for not specifying. Defensive tail wiggle and all. Leaving them together would not end well at all. Thanks for the info, Ill give it some time and try again later.

    Have you left them together to know what happens after the defensive tail wiggle? I've had that happen when I pair up new females sometimes and it stops pretty quickly. I don't know how long you left them together before, but if it was only for a few minutes you may want to try a few hours while you're around to monitor and separate them only if it looks as if there's biting and fighting (which you have to be sure not to confuse with mating).
