I had him in that small tank for only a week as my first male had died just before the first spawn just started to free swim.
I just try him out with my first female as per the pictures attached. Her second spawn was quiet big, but most of the eggs were scattered as he never built a bubble nest and the few eggs that he had kept aside they had managed to hatch. It is amazing how nature had taken it's course and what I thought him being immature. He has now built a nest as is constantly moving the few fry around.
I will be investing in smaller tanks for breeding and get more grow out tanks for the fry.
I will use him later to spawn again with this female. She is really wanting to breed.. LOL
