Inches? Male:female ratio?

1" to 3" can spawn depending on the species. I find males need to be more mature than females. For example, if you had a 1" female demasoni and a 3" male they could spawn.

But a 1" female Metriaclima estherae (red zebra) and a 3" male might not be mature enough yet.

1:3 male:female ratio is likely to work but 1:4 is even better IME.
