  1. I have never tried using breeder boxes.
  2. With the ADA soil you are going to be fighting a losing battle until the soil starts to lose its buffering capabilities. The ADA is doing what it is supposed to be doing. All my tanks run between 5.8-6.0 and my shrimps breed like rabbits.
  3. Bigger tank means less upkeep and more stable water conditions. Bigger tanks are far more forgiving when it comes to mistakes or neglect. The down side is the initial setup can be or will be expensive. My favorite size is 180 gallons.

    Saluwesi bandits

    Super easy to keep and reproduces faster than neo's. The clutches are huge. So far about 1/3 of the babies have the amount of black that people see in the pictures that SteveR posted.

    Oak leaves

    I would boil for 10-15min. How many leaves to put in really depends on the size of the leaves. Some oaks have more tannins than others, red oak for example have more tannins than white so that would be another factor to consider.
