I think quart containers would be fine as temporary housing for babies as long as water changes are kept up with. Water quality is very important.

Well, BREEDER RIGHT HERE!!! Ok so, for beginners I reccomend these items.

You'll need:

spawning tank
10-20 gallon tank
SUBMERSIBLE heater (25-50 watt)
Corner or sponge filter
gang valve
airline tubing
airpump
plenty of plastic or live plants
styrofoam cup

Breeding pair
two, one gallon jars
frozen foods
methylene blue
two one quart jars (for introducing the pair)

fry
microworm or infusoria culture (to be prepared weeks before spawning)
baby brine shrimp eggs (for a hatchery idea use this link: http://www.cichlid-forum.com/article...p_hatchery.php )
50-100 jars (at least 1 quart in size)
a larger tank (I use 30 gallons)

My current spawn is like that (balck butterfly male and red canmbodian female). Except everytime she wants to get out and I release her she changes her mind :P
