Thnx for the tips! Do you have any tips as far as heating the jars goes? Having a heater in every jar isnt affordable for me, maybe compartments in a heated tank or something?

I don't heat my jars/cups I keep them at room temp 75-76F housed in my china cabinet-you can cup and float in large tanks to maintain water temp and some use a barrack type system to maintain water temp.
I also keep my males in large planted tanks together until about 4-6 months of age and when it is time to transport to my buyer so I don't have to worry about 90% of the males...it can be a challenge housing multi males in colder climates.

I have found that they can tolerate lower water temp than what is usually recommended and still get good growth and development as well as finnage.

Well, 75-76F is a little hot for me to fall asleep :P 70 is really doable tho. Ill put the jars next to my space heater anyways, so there its probably a little warmer. Well see how it works out. I also found the DIY tank divider tutorial, extremely usefull! I am talking with a selling of a 60cm tank. Dont know the exact dimensions, but I think its 54L/14-15G. I could easily divide it in 3 or 4 compartments to house 4 beautiful males :D Then I only need a breed/spawn tank and jars.

You can get a big plastic tub, add a few inches of water, put in a heater, and add the jars VOILA :)

I going to get a 60cm tank (think its at least 54L) with heater and filter. Might divide it in 2 or 3 compartments so I can house 3 males and a few females :) For breeding ill get another tank and some jars/plastic tanks etc. My roommate is getting a 80cm tank so I could house some fish over there as well :)
