Best is to separate the pair for about a week then introduce them into the spawning tank at the same time. Spawning tank should have something on the bottom to hide the eggs (i.e. marbles or an eggcrate grid) and a section of thick, fine needled plants for the pair to spawn in.
(Separating the pair will entice them to spawn A.S.A.P. once back together. They should be removed once spawning has occured.)

Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions

Hope this helps.

Hay Guys,
Just wondering how do I know when they have spawned? If I'm not watching?

Since they spawn more in the evening hours, the female(s) will have been nice and plump one night then nice and skinny the next morning. That it your sign they spawned.
