I started off with 14 L066 and over time reduced the group size untill i had a mature group i was happy with. They have been breeding for around 8-10 months now. Both males have spawned as have all 3 females. Usually they breed once every 3-6 weeks, clutches are quite large with upto 60 eggs on some occasions. They seem to be on a break at the moment as its been over 2 months since the last spawn but the males are showing signs again and all females are heavily gravid.
