Endlers would spawn with the filter if they could. Heck i'm sure mine have already humped it at least once LOL! I'll tell you my setup for them. It's a 10Gal with 1 big java fern, lots of java moss (rescued from my 55 gal), 1 narrow leaf java fern with about 20-30 leaves. And Salvina Minima.
They (adult and fry) endlers, share a tank with 1 Dwarf Puffer, and 2 Otos
When my girls (currently 2 females big enough to breed) have the babies i dont remove them from the tank. Infact i leave the mothers and fathers with the kids. My last two spawns have been in the 5-7 category. Hopefully i'll get more females, because i know i have 2 females comming into the "age" where i need to give the "talk" and soon enough i'll be over filled with endlers.
Just checked my tank and i have one very very pregnant female, she looks like she'll pop in the next week or so.
Oh ya, i feed my endlers flake food on the regular but when i have extra time i thaw out the bloodworms and let them indulge. The females LOVE them, and they are helping me to stock my 55 so why not help them out.
