Multi Breeding Question

    I've been seeing all the breeding behavior going on the past month+ but I have yet to see any fry. Is there any way to encourage this? Also, would moving shells be good or bad?

    What fish do you have?

    No need to remove the shells. Keep the tank in a calm area to encourage breeding. If they are stressed then they will not breed. Rise the temperature in between 75 - 80° F with a pH range in between 7.5-8.5.

    The pH is about 8 and the temp is about 78. I won't remove shells, but was concerned with moving them while cleaning. It's in an area that people pass by fairly often, so the fish get scared occasionally. Do you think that may inhibit them at all?
