Have to agree with Tuna. I keep 2 males with 3-5 females in a tank and my males don't keep their eggs in their caves and I don't lose spawns. Just keep the breeders well fed.

Reread my comment. I keep more females than males together not more males than females. 2 males will probably fight if there is only 1 female.
