    Jungle Aquatics has the best but make sure they get them at the time you are here.
    I have a few but not to many due to colder climate.

    Kk , still got both females? Try and keep them females with the male for a couple of days and see if there is maybe a chance of him pairing up with one of the females, i know a friend of mine that uses this method , u should try and setup a tank just for females as well , having more females to pick from.What is the colors of the females?

    I will try that thanks, i have a red HM female and a Steel Blue CT female. He shows more interest in the Blue female than the red but i will try both again. Pulled all out of the breeding tank so i can re condition them and try again.
