Other Comments: 1 pair in a 3g tank. Half hard tapwater, half RO. 4 fat mops, and a large clump of java moss. Small sponge filter. Don't remember a water change, though did top up as water evapourated. Top shelf of fishroom - intended to move them to a cooler shelf, but didn't. Fed them a lot of baby artemia, pellets, and the odd whiteworm. 3 months later I have 6 1/2 inch fry with the adults.
