Looks good, alot of hiding places and caves.
Do yours like the slate caves or the round ones best?

How big is your alpha male?
I'm trying to get mine to breed, every time i change water, the male trap a female but nothing happens, they have done it about 5 times now :roll:

hi kris thanks for comment yeh they like the round ones more and have spawned in them 3 times now mine have done it twice straight after a water change and once when i was due to change water i put some bigger square ones in as hiding places and to create gaps under my slate dividers so zebs can hide out there 2. keep trying im sure it will happen soon they getting their practice in :loldude: :loldude: best of luck

Hmm that wasn't big, mine are around 3 inches.
What do you feed them with, and what have you done trying to get them to breed?

prob about 2.5 to 3 inch i feed them hikari carnivoure tablets high in protein tetra prima and the odd frozen cooked prawns now and then.
i looked where my flow was hitting the glass and going down along the bottom of the tank i could see it better when putting crushed food up in so where the flow is i set up my tiers of caves so the flow goes right across the front of the caves and they all took their places then and the male claimed the 3 bottom right hand side caves he has spawned in 2 of them now.
i put in slate dividers that overhang the caves to keep light out i use my lights for 4 hours a night from 6 till 10 just as its goin dark feed them with lights on works for me but others may be diff good look mate
