Sadly enough the female stopped defending that spot the next day, so I'm presuming someone ate them overnight! But my pair is still doing well together, doing the typical mating 'dance', so I'm sure...

Well, I'm under the impression that these fish just adapt allot harder once they are adults, I saw the same thing happen when I moved them to my lfs, 2 weeks later when I came by to pick up my plants...

That's something you could do, keep a small container somewhere with some gravel and put mts in, they are pretty temperature resilient, although they breed better in higher temps. Just feed them a...
