Thanks for the info! I read the article and I'll be using it as a reference guide to breed them. I have had them for 4 months now, they were given to me by someone who had a 90 gallon tank with discus. After a few years the discus died off and he didnt want to deal with maintaining a large tank. I had the pair in a 2.5 with a powerhead, slate rock, heater and cave for about a month. For the past 3 months they have been in a 30x12x6 tank with cpd, pigmy cories and a L129 (I think) there are LOTS of slate, large pebbles, clay pots and java moss. I also have a powerhead with attachment for filtration and circulation. I made a spray bar because the current was too strong. I think I need the clay tubes as described in the article. I feed hikari carnivorous pellets, wardleys shrimp pellets, spirulina pellets, frozen blood worms and brine shrimp, live blackworms and tubifex worms and microworms (cpds and pygmy cories)
The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.
