I'd like to know if I should be resting the females between breeding, the two females i have in my 3 foot tank have laid about 8 times now, as soon as i take the fry outa the tank it's not more than a week or so before they are at it again. Should I seperate the females and give them a break?

Hi Mike,

If you feel that you should give them a rest, take out the pipe or cave which they are spawning in and than return it whenever you think they have had the break. That way you will not disturb or stress the parents by moving them, as you may not be able to get them to breed again. Just a thought smile.gif
