The setup looks good, but IMO the female should have several places to hide from the male if he gets too agressive.

The set up looks really good. nice and clean (for now anyway).

For suggestions, I would suggest many more live plants that look like they are "bunches" like water sprice guppy grass and others as well. Water Sprice is my favorite. "(You can google any of these if you dont know them).

As for the little hidey spot, I would say that is fine. I mean look at the Thia and top breeders in the US. They don't use a ten gallon tank nor do they use a hiding spot for the female. And if they do use a hiding spot then they use a small cup or something in that sense.

I like using snails because they do their "jobs." Snails are really helpful and they help with infusoria and eat the dead fry and food that could contaminate the water. So I would highly suggest either a nice sized apple snail or just a few regular pond snails.

Good Luck! Ah, Crowntails! Beautiful color and nice rays from what I can see from the two pictures. I want to see how this spawn comes out.

I think you should drop the male and the female in the aquarium at the same time to avoid any territoriality between them

This can be done in which ever order the breeder feels works best for them. Though if you look at the picture the female can't really claim anything because she is confined in a glass. The male however will claim the tank.

I myself usually have the female in the hurricane glass and the male wandering all over claiming the tank, though like I said it really depends on the breeder's choice.

Please don't take this as I am trying to put your opinion/suggestion/idea down. I am just explaining other possibilities.

are you saying the snail produces infusoria, or eats it??
