My set up is pretty similar to 1fish2fish's. I use a 4 gallon Sterilite tub with 3 inches of water, submersible heater set at 86 degrees, almond leaf lid or styrofoam cup as a nest anchor and a bushy plant. Sometimes I jar the female, sometimes I don't. I keep the tank very dark and I rarely disturb the pair. This is known as "shallow spawn" method. www.bettysplendens.com
has many methods that work, read each one. I like my tub to be a very dark color...like a dark ember color from the almond leaves.
