The only problem with this method is that you can't see nest/eggs/fry. If you don't need to stare at them (lol), this isn't a problem. This method is great for rather shy males. It can also be used for splendens. Make sure the hole is very big and if possible, bend/fold the sides inward to make it even safer for the fish.
Thanks for sharing. Good luck on your wilds.
You wont add or remove water till frys are free of swim anyways so there no need for that
as far as seeing the frys/egg your just gonna have to wait till you see the frys swim. the whole thing to this method is trying to get the male as comfortable he can. This pair was hard for me to breed the first time cause the male was so shy of me after 1 day of this setup the male made a nest in the tank already so things are looking up
