Ok after I finish building my shelf for 10-15G tanks I'm going to get a couple. Have you bred them? How much space do they need ?(a pair) I know a little but I'm just backing myself up on all of it "!

i havent bred them myself, but i think a 29 gallon is the minimum for a pair, and a couple of 10-15g tanks would be okay for the fry.
