I agree, our only real influence is creating the correct environment for our fish/inverts. Once that is done you really can't stop them from reproducing.

Having fish spawn is something I expect in my tanks at this point in my hobby life. What surprised me is when fry survive with so many threats present. When I bred cichlids my goal 90%+ survival rate. Funny, now I'm excited about a sole surviver. She does fit in well with my Darwinian approach to my tanks.
