I Decided to match up my female Aru with my male Sorong to mix the heartiness and girth of the aru with the brilliant coloration of the sorong and hopefully the docileness of both localities would make excellent offsprint. Great. Fine. Step one complete - they're doing it. For the past three days non stop they're doing it.
After three years of keeping Chondros, I have finally decided to mate them so this is my first attempt. Are they supposed to go at it for this long non stop? The book says 10 hours, then they would separate. Then i should separate them and reintroduce the male every few days until they are no longer interested. This has not happend. THEY HAVE BEEN AT IT FOR 3 DAYS NOW!
A couple of things I should point out :
The female is a large (almost 6 ft) adult of 7 years old. The male is much smaller and thinner of about 3 years old.
Upon inspection, I have yet to see penetration. However, I have not been watching them constantly. I ASSUME that at this point there has been penetration but on the same note, could it be that the reason they are taking so long is that there has not been penetration?
Advice is appeciated.
