These have grown from 1" to about 3" in the couple of months I've had them. Time for a serious spawning attempt soon!

Yeah, they're huge compared to when you first had them. Really interesting fish. Do they have any particular breeding requirements Matt, or is it just a case of conditioning the fish and making sure their water requirements are correct?

Don't know mate. I've asked around but no-one I know seems to have read a spawning account. I can see that some of the fish have an orangey area around the belly. These, i assume, are females. I've already added peat to the filter on the tank and this week I'm going to try a large water change with acidified water, see if that instigates anything. My main worry is that there's a dozen fish in there so I'm not sure how long any fry might last. Will keep this thread updated as things happen.

Nice picture and nice fish, Matt.

It'll be interesting to see their breeding habits. Do you have intentions of writing a breeding diary or log?
