well-heres the set up...20 gallon long, bare bottom, painted back.
kept at 80 degrees, with a diy cave from 2 clay flower pots, small piece of driftwood-and a small sponge filter.

a male and a female-thats a good one....
ill throw in an airstone when i move them in later.
perimeters i can do, hope the female loves cucumbers!
fatten her up-she is due to lay again in 2 weeks, so i need to move them to there own tank soon so they can adapt.
water out of the tap is around 7 ph...tds measures 144.
i can breed discus...this sounds alot easier.

yeah, sounds like you have it covered.

One final thing to remember which is something everybody seems to forget.

they will only breed when they are ready, all the triggers and barry white in the world wont work if they are not ready Smile
