Hi Sashimi :)
I'll write up what I've done, but I am by no means experienced. I only have one successful spawn under my belt, with 3 week old fry. I plan to start my next spawn soon.
In my spawning tank, I filled the tank about 4 inches, with a bare bottom. I added 1 Indian Almond Leaf (IAL), a clump of java moss, a few handfulls of duckweed, a half of a styrofoam cup for the nest, and a sponge filter that I set to 1-2 bubbles a second. The sponge was not seasoned, and this is something I will change the next go round. 2 days ago I added 3 smallish mystery snails, that is something I also will change next go round, to have them in the beginning.
Male and female went into the tank for a full day. The male had the run of the tank, and the female went into a glass. She never did bar up like you read in breeding articles, but she successfully mated. I think the reason I went from about a 100 fry clutch to 30+ is b/c she wasn't fully ready/not barred up.
One other thing that I will change is water changes and vaccum clean up. In several articles from respected sources, I read you don't touch the fry tank by adding water, removing gunk, or changing any water for at least the first two weeks. I think this is also a reason I lost so many. So next go round I plan to start adding water, about a gallon a day from the first week on, and also remove gunk at about a week on. I believe a seasoned sponge filter and the snails will take care of the clean up until they are a week old. We shall see :)
