I just got a shipment of 1 male and 3 female Borelli's. It's kind of early yet, they are still juveniles- and I don't have them in an ideal tank yet (20 gallon high with a small community, Thicklip Gourami, 2 Elegant Cory's, 1 flash pleco). I will have a 10 gallon this weekend I plan on setting up with 2 sponge filters, some cave structures, sand, and a bunch of floating plants (water lettuce). I'm going to try and quick cycle the tank using Dr. Tim's ammonia and some Seachem Stability - but won't be ready for at least 3 or 4 weeks. Eventually I will upgrade the 20 to a 40 - but that's about 6 months off. How do I know when these guys pair off? What behavior do I look for? What is the best temperature to keep the 10 gallon at? I control the PH - I make my own RODI water and use Equllibrium, acid, alkaline buffers with flourish line of products. So where should I set this at? Right now my 20 high has high ph because I cycled with tap water (8.4) and have slowly started bringing it down (at 7.8 now). I was thinking of going to 7.2. Any other advice is greatly appreciated. I've always wanted to try my hand at breeding apisto's. I plan on getting another shipment of 1 male, 3 more females from another source when I go to the 40 gallon.
