In my aquarium of 30 liters is inhabited by three catfish-antitrus, twin Zebra pink and three minor. It would seem that conditions are not favorable for breeding fish. Place them a bit and care for them can be regarded as average. Periodically they receive the vitamins that people eat generic dry food, and sometimes crustaceans and crushed gammarus.
