Got a group of nine in mid December at about 1/2 inch and over the past week two have really colored up. Just checked the pleco cave they have both been coming in and out of and they have layed 30-50 eggs. I've been told it may take a couple spawns to get it right so not expecting much. Pretty surprised it happened this fast and will update as things progress

Just picked up 6 Ivanacara, plan on setting them up in a 75gal. Any ideas for set up to breed?

I have a group of 9 in a 33 gallon...bout to move them into something bigger....I just let them pair off on their own...female ate the eggs when I did a water change.....give them a cave, quality food and time

I am in the process of setting up tanks for 6 juveniles, any recommendations on set up, tank size etc.?

Thanks, if you are successful with breeding I would be interested in some of the babies if you plan on selling them.
