I once tried it with 1m and 1f in a 5.5gal tank filled with java moss, I boiled a IAL for about 2h until the water was reduced to 1 cup. Let it cool down, pour it in the tank. I fed microworms right away, they went crazy. Turned off the lights for 3 days, first day lights back on I couldn't see a fry, but the next day I could see 7-8 swimming. Started feeding microworms right away.

After all, I still have 1 fry that survived with the parents. When the fry is about 10 days old, it seems like the parents don't bother eating them anymore.
