Only dozens? You must not be feeding them enough... :red_mouth Once you have a dozen or so females dropping fry regularly you'll soon have hundreds. I move them into a 40 breeder for the zebra knife to chow down by the dozens, and they reproduce almost as fast as they get eaten.
Only thing worse than the endler's are the 3 pairs of cutteri in a 90 gallon tank. I have 6 Tanganykian moustache catfish in that tank to keep the hundreds of fry they constantly produce under control, and even then a few manage to get by; 5 are easier to handle than 5,000.

I just feed them once every two days or so. I'm not really into breeding them. Also, my tank is open so most males jumps out. Some juveniles got caught by the filter intake and would stay there for few weeks and yet still lives.

I've seen several posts regarding fish in filters, sucked in as eggs or tiny fry and when they're found have grown 2-3x the size the rest of the brood. Apparently the constant water flow (and nonstop swimming) makes them use more energy and grow much faster. Gotta suck though, never get a break or be able to rest unless they can swim in their sleep...
