Is this okay?

So, here is what I am going to try now.

1) lower water level in 29 gallon to 4-6"

2) Separate tank with a foam divider. From now on, lets say this is two separate tanks.

3) Heat each tank to 80-83F

4) Put floating lids, Indian Almond leaves, and hide-outs in each tank

5) Condition 3 pairs (in case one doesn't work out) on Bloodworms and Brine shrimp

6) Place male in each tank

7) Place female in breeder box in each tank

8) NOW WHAT????? I will be tryinga veiltail pair and a HM pair.

8) let male build nest
9) release female
10) wait for them to breed (can take a few days)
11) take out female and put her in her own tank to recover
12) wait for fry to become free swimming then take dad out
13) live food
14) good food, good water and patience will make your babies become adults

What if they don't spawn? My veiltail pair is from Petsmart, and my HM pairs from a breeder. I think that I will try two HM pairs instead of a pet store veiltail pair.
