Pretty! I just introduced a male to my female yesterday and it looks like they're already defending a spawning site. Good luck with them!

Thanks, they're constantly together. I gave them some frozen bloodworm tonight and they, ve ate. Is there anything you recommend so I know they get a staple diet?

I usually feed New Life Spectrum pellets; since they like to feed at the bottom I soak some in a spoon of tank water first so when I put them in they drop right away and they eat as they're falling. A few times a week I'll mix in some ground fish flakes for variety. Once a week they get frozen treats (bloodworms, shrimp, etc). They also like to graze on the shrimp or veggie or algae pellets I throw in for the corys too.
