Hey

Does anyone have any tips on how to breed my JDs? *** given them pots, bogwood, afew pieces of slate to spawn on, cover etc

Is there any particular trick to it?

I’ve had a lot of luck breeding Dempseys with:

Temp of 79~82*F…

Lower PH than typically recommended…

Clay Pots…

Very clean water…

Plenty of tank space where they are the pair is the dominant force in the tank…

Feeding NLS as a staple with frozen ‘treats’ (smaller than a meal, not in place of a meal) every other day or so…

Take mine!!! :p They won't quit breeding... First fry didn'tlast more than two weeks. Second time around (and by this point all other JD's in my tank are dead minus the two breeding...) the babies survive, they are about a month old now, and a few days ago - guess what, more babies....
