I am too....the wrong kind.  Had two het bulgarian green pair up and spawn. Pulled the eggs, none hatched. Put them in their own tank and they spawned again.  Again none hatched.  Three days later the other one laid a batch of eggs.  LOL Two females.  At least I know I have a couple females, now for them to find a male they like and I should be all set.  I think the males are maturing slower than the females.

I'm not afraid of work.  I can lay down right next to it and go to sleep.

With Discus the males are always on the slow side, but once they figure it out they're the better of the two parents. 
Always move forward. Never look back.
