it looks like a good start, but if you want to breed them i would put some more rocks or bits of slate of there for them to lay the eggs on and some more hiding holes. Are you using CO2 and what wpg does it have?

Looks great, especially the rams. By the way do you mean java fern instead of java moss?

Aussie_Star They have spawned before on the rock in the left back corner so i am trying to make a little wall around that. They have spawned about three times but the eggs just dont seem to hatch. The first time i caught a snail munching on them and the past two times they just grow a fungus on them and then the parents eat them after about three days. Any suggestion?
Jdinh04 Thanks. Yes i meant Java Ferns i might put some moss in there later though.

the rock seems to have something on it, that may be the cause of eggs getting fungus. try adding some clay pot.

Could you remove the eggs to a "clean" tank?

You can just leave them in there, rams have been seemed to be very good parents. If not, take the eggs into a rubber made bucket I guess, add meth. blue and an airstone to areate the water.

Rams are excellent parents. I've never seen them make bone-head moves (like angelfish). Leaving the eggs with the parents gives you the best chance of getting free-swimming fry.

I have had infertile males (eggs never hatch in aerated methyl blue) and parents that eat the eggs. It seems that the male is a better guardian of a clutch so it might help to remove the female.

If you do want to separate the eggs I have used Tupperware like containers floated or perched to keep temp steady.
