    all you need is a mature male and female and nature wont let you down
    pleny of meaty foods like frozen blood worms is good IME

    Platies, guppies, mollies and swordtails are normally very obliging

    Are they a mated pair yet? Have they picked which is female or male yet? Is the larger one doing this weird "shimmy dance"?
