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 10g 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! (Im sure must of you know this, but in case a new member is reading the thread)

Tiger was so great, no aggression what so ever. I was so shocked

Depending on what the babies look like, and what the price is, I will probably be interested in buying one as well!
