Not sure if I caught them in the act but both the male and female are under the pvc.

Squint, close your left eye and tilt your head to the right and you can just barely see some eggs between the bottom pieces of pvc.

The spawn from 1/8/2018 was gone by 1/10/2018.  Angry The female is still nice and plump and the male is constantly courting her. I bumped up the amount of pods and brine shrimp they are getting, hoping this increases the egg numbers and continues the spawning.

90% sure this pair is spawning as I'm typing this! problem is they picked just about the hardest place for me to see them. I have two sets of pvc pyramids made of 3 inch pieces of pvc. Each one has two larger pieces ( 1inch ) on bottom and a smaller (1/2 ) inch piece on the top. They have decided to spawn between the two bottom pieces and the bottom of the tank. I can see them in there but I can see eggs and I can't get them in a picture. If they continue to look like they did for sure spawn there and I can't get a picture ill pick it up to get egg pics. Ill probably wait until after I collect a hatch to make sure that is what is going on. I think this will be my next focus project.

The pair is finally starting to look like a pair! One is noticeably longer and the other is chubby. They also have started hanging out in the back of the tank near the sponge filter. Possible things to come.

I didn't realize I hadn't started a journal for these until tonight when I found eggs! I think I received these in early October of their year (2017). I have two pairs set up in two different breeder nets in the same 20 gallon tank. One of the "pairs" doesn't get along very well, the smaller one hides almost all the time. The pair that spawned today get along well, always out and about and feed well together. The male has an elongated first dorsal spine and is slightly larger than the female. The male seems to be guarding the eggs.

That whole swapping fish trick didn't work Cry. The next morning the newly introduced fish was dead. I put the pair back together, they're looking just as happy as ever. Just no eggs...
