    Well, instead a pair of JD I recued 2 pairs.
    Is a 75 gls enough????

    if they are a m/f combo, each pair I mean, it wont be enough :( and any breeding pairs that might come out of the 4, will NOT tolerate the others....if they are all the same sex, you could be ok for awhile :)

    They a 2 boys 2 girls.
    They are 4 inches each, they together but I know.. How much time I got???

    hmm maybe 5 months? and im guessing...my fem bred at about 5 inches but my male was closer to 7

    But I know BB and others have had theirs breed much smaller...

    When will I do it?
    Wait until the first pair bred? Then move the other pair.
    or do it now? before any figthing ?

    if they are only 4 inches big, and you dont see any agression/injuries on them, id leave them until you see a pair forming....:)

    You'll know when it's time to do something. When you see them start to become aggressive toward each other, I'd suggest making some other arrangements for one pair. It will start off with chasing and posturing, and then progress to nipped fins, lip locking, etc. I'm sure you'll want to take care of things before you get to that point, lol.

    Could be better if i take one male out and leave one male with two females?
    Or just wait and see.
