Tips for breeding CPDs?
I've been trying to breed several of these little guys, but so far I've been unsuccessful. They're set up in half of a ten gallon tank with a big wad of yarn above an egg trap. There's plenty of filtration with an Aquaclear 30 and two sponge filters, and I've set it up in a way that there's not too much flow where the fish are. Temp is 75F, pH is slightly above 7. I've been feeding them above twice daily with microworms, Golden Pearls, decapitated brine shrimp eggs, or frozen baby brine shrimp. They've color up nicely, but the females don't seem that large with eggs. I have 2 males and 3 females. So far no eggs, even after about two month. Any suggestions on how to get them to spawn?
