Yah they'll really enjoy all that space to themselves.. You could add a school if rummynose tetras too, I've found my pair tolerates them well with fry in the tank.. They've corralled my barbs into a corner because they were way to curious with the young..

Did you have to intervene at all when it came to the fry or do they make good parents?

Just noticed this thread! Let me go snap some pics of my mcmasteri

Pretty sure brookster is raising the fry in a separate tank.

they're great parents!! I took most if the fry out just because other fish I there, I left a few in too see how they'd do, they are bigger and way more colored up than the others in the fry tank.. Momma knows best..and feeds better than I doo too apparently...

Buy a cheaply hob filter and leave it running on your display tank, when it's time you're ready for action!! I use a tetra whisper 10 with a prefilter sponge on a 5.5

That sounds just fine! You're wanting a breeding pair than huh? You have some place that buys back?
