"La Ceiba Yellowhead" pairing

Post by dtoth » Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:00 am

So was curious is it best to let these guys pair off naturally as they grow up or to isolate out a male and female? Just trying to avoid the casualties from adding up when a pair does form and the destruction of the others of their kind begins lol. They're still small think the biggest which I believe to be a male is about 2 1/2", what size do these guys typically start pairing off and start getting ready to spawn?

provide them with ample room, and wait

Expect them to pair of around 10 cm/4 inches for the male - or a bit larger

6 - 3:3 in a well decorated 4 footer would suffice in all ways
