    CPD's are pretty easy to breed.
    Provide them with javamoss to lay there eggs in. If well fed they'll leave the eggs amd youngsters.

    With the cpd's it's straight forward
    Species tank with alot of Java. Oh I'm running is low. 6.5
    You have to pull eggs or adults will predate. I put mine in plastic containers to pull daily. Remember they spawn at first light so pull containers at lunch time. Once they start they spawn every day.

    Give them brine shrimp or infusaria to condition them.

    The chilli rasboras I'm still working on but they like a low oh and heavily planted tank.
    I would suggest you get some Indian almond leaves to drop oh and put some tannens in the water.

    To get the eggs out is not easy. They spawn were ever they want....

    I thought it was hard work breeding CPDs given they are often very expensive to buy o_O

    They are expensive as they dont travel well and the majority of them either arrive dead or die after a day or 2. They stress easily and then they are done for.

    I do the same as GBR guy but I use a double layer of marbles at the bottom of the container. 2 pairs per tank, I allow them 3 mornings in the tank and then move the adults out. Usually get 20 to 50 fry per tank this way. I feed with vinegar eels as a first food once they go free swimming. Once they can take microworms (about 3 weeks to a month) I switch to banana worms. These I feed until they can take first bites.

    Chilli rasbora should be able to be spawned the same way. Never tried them but they are egg scatterers and so far all species of egg scatterers works on the above method

    My tank pH is 8.2. Its the same as the water in the taps. Dont think its critical for the cpds. Temp is 22 degrees

    Just to clarify I have a tank with the adults in and then I have 6 spawning tanks. The spawning tanks each contain a rock with an anubias so the fish have somewhere to hide. Then it has a 500 g Spar margarine container with the marbles and moss in it. This way the fish only have 1 option of where to scatter eggs. It has to be Spar as the cpds dont like the other brands:tt2:
