    well the female has really been bulking up the past week. today during feeding she looked like she could pop. came home from dinner tonight and the male is constantly on her "tail". i have a good feeling in going to wake up to a male with a mouth full of eggs.

    heres a vid of when the activity started happening. the lights are off now, they dipped behind the rocks 2 min after lights out and didnt come out for a couple mins, then right back in. i got bored and went to type this.
