what size tank are you planning for breeding? growout? do you have a m/f pair, or are waiting for them to pair up? JDs are not a beginner breeder imo

the 55 will work for a breeding pair, but you will need another 55 or two for grow-out tanks. i wish you the best of luck though, breeding fish is a great experience

My last pair of JDs bred at 2.5" to 3" range. They were about 4 month old. First three batches they ate them. But bred consistently every 6 weeks.
