"I have a pair of Balas in my tank, which is not large(only 2ft by 1 ft by 1.5 ft). the tank is decorated in the style of a stream with the filter set to provide a constant current, rocks to swim around and plenty of pondweed floating at the top. i have heard that they never breed in captivity(unless its done professionally), however the female is laying a lot of eggs in the weed. They eat almost anything (but do not eat pellets unless there is no other food in the tank) and particurly love daphnia. the egg layer is not large, she is only around 4 inches long and quite slim. it is almost impossible to sex them so i will be adding a few more of similar size to the tank in the hopes that one is a fertile male. keep your eyes posted on this notice, because if i get a load of little babies, i will post all of the details of their tank conditions in the hopes that we can haave a few more successes in the future."
