My female started laying eggs at around two inches. I rearranged my tank one weekend and they paired up right away. I also have success feeding bloodworms to encourage breeding. Don't worry, you won't be able to stop them in a few months!!! It is very exciting to see a swarm of baby cons being guarded by their parents. I have a couple of babies that have grown to almost an inch!

Have fun!
