I personally have'nt had good luck with dithers in any of my JD Tanks. They get picked off at the rate of 2-3 a night. Is your female always hiding away from the male? I have had way better luck seperating the female. Getting her out of the shy/hiding stage and fattening her up by hand feeding her every time I walk by her tank. Then reintroducing the male back to her. It can take some time. A month or two but this is what worked for me. When the female is in breeding shape and the male is in show off mode and not abusing the female spawning seem to happen within a week or so. The whole dither thing was just a waste of $ every time I tried it. dgarrett
