I would just sit back be patient and hopefully soon you might have some females holding I just hope that your male is mature enough to do the job ! ! !

i'm a fan of only having one male in the tank.
But in many cases a second male is needed to convince the alpha to breed.
Do you have more than one male?
Have you vented and sure it is a male?

Hi guys

I have pictures in my photo gallary of the kitumba colony. The alpha male is the mature male of the colony the others are too small. I guess I will see if he is tubing as well.
