My maroon finally accepted a mate!

This was my third and final attempt to get her a mate, and finally it worked!
I did the specimen container trick and now they are all lovey dovey.
I was starting to think it would never happen since my first 2 try's ended w/ my female killing the males b4 I even had time to grab the net to rescue them.
I'm also stoked that got her a GSM male as she is a WSM.

That's how I did it. Except I used eggcrate instead. Good job and good luck.

Grats, I am curious how can you tell when they are paired besides the sizes? Currently I have 2 percs one is bigger than the other one by a little. But what gives it away that they are paired? Is there something I need to look for?

Thanks guys.
Yeah GSM and Tourkid probably remember my extremely frustrating prior attempts.
And yes, I agree, close to her nem was a big factor, and I achieved that w/ that cube I got as a promo thing sent to Current USA which they gave to me.
Happy, in my case it was obvious, because she killed the first 2 males w/ in a couple minutes of intro(I couldn't even get the net fast enough.
On release of this one the male immediately went into submissive twitching, and they circled furiously for the first hour(but no biting)
Sounds like your percs are fine.
