Hey Everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And here is the set up:

10g tank, fill to about 30% of water.
Tons of Indian Almond Leaves.
Lots of Java fern in a corner of the tank for the female to hide.
A heater
Tight lid with a lamp
A breeding box to first introduce the female

Before introducing them to the 10 gallon I fed them for about a week lots of blood worms because its rich in protein and its great to condition the pair for breeding! (I'm sure must of you know this, but in case a new member is reading the thread)

And here is a quick video of when I first introduced the female into the tank


And last here is a picture of the male guarding the eggs
