    No need to shark tank. Just do what you did before and put him in on the far side of the tank. Let him find his way to her but be on standby to rescue him if she isn't receptive. Here's my girl showing 0 interest.

    So i tried pairing them up again and planning on trying on 2 days time again...what happened was the male was receptive female did not give any response he walked up right next to her so i held my ruler right above them she then threat posed and he ran away...do you guys think i might have startled her? Can i let him touch her even though she is not receptive?

    Are you sure it was a threat pose and she wasn't just rearing up so he could access her furrow?

    Well i think im sure the fact that she wasn't receptive and he ran as soon as she did makes me think it was a threat

    That could go either way, but if he ran he knows best. Females do have to rear up like a threat pose in order for the male to reach under them. It can be confusing.

    Good job! She's dilated, but I can't tell if he got her for sure. My guess would be that he did.
