I use PVC pipe too, but for bigger size BN, I use a discus breeding cone and instead of sitting up, I lay it down, holding it with 2 clothes peg so it won't roll around. It was a last min thing and I couldn't find anything big enough, cos my friend jus passed me his pair of common BN for breeding when I visited. Anyway, they used the breeding cone and gave me their 1st batch of fry very recently.

yeah, its too big.

They may use it if there is nothing else and you condition them up really well but under normal conditions I would be surprised if they did.

thats a better option but it is still a bit roomy for them. Longfins might feel more at home in it cut in half for the extra width though.
