I agree with biff live food seems to work. Ive read alot about it working it must kick them off simulating there real habitat. Daphnia etc is cheap also.

What ever makes them feel safe. Read up on there natural habitat where they live. That should give you some info on what may work for them. But if its more cover for them its good. If they feel comftable and safe it will help.

Just read your other post. If they have already gave it a shot id just leave tank. Alot of species dont get it right first time and if they dont breed for a while then I would add other things to tank.
