I want to keep the strain pure, but also strong without too much inbreeding.

Usually that's what I do as long as they fry are vibrant and healthy.

Is there any difference in breeding between Imbellis and Splendens.

I can't say this is true for all wild breeders, but many of us let them dictate how things go. Since couples/communities can be kept together full time, they can spawn more or less continuously. This means that the traditional conditioning, separation and introduction of the female and removal of the female kind of go out the window. In fact, many people end up keeping reverse trios (2 males, 1 female) in one tank so that one male doesn't get exhausted and die from malnutrition. This is especially important for mouthbrooders, who go without eating for up to 20 days.

I think Setsuna does set up breeding tanks for her wilds, I personally just keep them in a breeding setup full time. Most species will not eat their own fry. But I don't care if I get small spawns either. Setsuna has so far had quite big spawns.

Wild bubblenesters also sometimes create their bubblenest somewhere below the surface, which makes it kind of hard to be very involved as a breeder :P

And mouthbrooder fry are at least 2 weeks old when they emerge from dad's mouth, which means they skip those first two weeks of fry food because they're big enough to go straight to eating BBS and micro worms.
