They sure do. Just keep things as they are, you've done something right to get a pair. Don't forget to lower the temperature/ water change at the right times, my pair never managed to spawn as i couldn't get the temperature low enough in the house.

How did you get them to pair!!!!???
I used a method which I applied to andrao and bleheri last year and get success in breeding ,I just put a smaller female with a male ( just a little smaller ) , and keep a eye on them for few days that they don't fight , but after initial flaring they start wrapping , and living peacefully,, I also tried a bigger female with a smaller male ,but she starts hitting him after a day , and doing this method on mature fish is good,

Thanks dude, figured that’s where I went wrong female was much bigger than the male. He has been removed and is growing out in another tank... hopefully can turn again when he is bigger.. I am assuming that makes get larger than females?
