Even though bare bottom is easy to be kept clean, I still recommend to have some sands on the bottom because bare bottom reflects light and scares the fish unless it's painted in black. You might have better chance to breed them with some sands based on my experience. :D

I can see another problem when comes to feeding. zebs are not agressive eater and they have better chance to find food in a smaller space. I keep 4-5 zebs in 100L tank. I will feed when the lights go out. I'm talking about the size of your tank being a little too big for them to search food around.

I believe captive bred fish grow relatively smaller. I also think it may take about the same time for them to be mature. It may take 4 years for a captive bred fish to become 2.5 inch, but only take 2 years for a wildcaught fish to become the same size. :)

What size & age are your fish?

Better pics would help. :wink:
I agree. The rest are too young to give them a proper sex.

Based on your pic, I think you have a standard zeb cave and your male is still a little too young to breed. Usually males take a bit longer to ready; about 3.5 to 4 years. Good luck.

Don't worry. Dad will let them out at night for searching food. The fries will come back and stay in the cave with their dad during the day time. I have a couple fries who are 2 months old and still like to stay with their dad during the day time. :D
