I'm keeping some Taiwan PBL. Params are:

pH: 6.5
TDS: 160
Temp: 75F

They breed regularly and I already have 3 generations brewing from 10 adults.

They're not as susceptible to bacterial infection unlike Tigers so the higher temp don't hurt them. Now that don't mean I'm going to bump up the temp beyond 75F. They don't like anything higher than 75F. It's breeding season so I'm keeping the temp at 75 to keep the females all impregnated, otherwise during the Winter months, I keep them at 70F.
