"I am on my second breeding pair of Dempseys. I found that if your female is larger than your male, she doesn't get beat up at all. She laid on Thursday and by Sunday I had wigglers. Since then they've moved the fry to one of SEVERAL pits dug up on the bottom. I've also found that the best way to curb aggression is space and minimal tank mates. My Demps are about 4" (F) and 3" (M) and live in a 30 gallon tank with a firemouth and pleco. The firemouth gets the unfortunate job of being the Demps common enemy, but there's enough tank space that he not only stays out of the way, but has one side pretty much to himself. I have only plastic plants in the tank, as the Demps WILL rearrange everything at the bottom, especially when spawning. They are fun to watch, and about as personable as a fish can get. They watch me as much as I watch them, I'm pretty sure. They are great fish!!"
