5.6 is pretty low even for those guys... buffering it down into the 6's and keeping it steady, keeping a large enough school of just that species with lots of plants and a good mix of male/female, good healthy foods (brine shrimp, black worms, flake, even formula 1 frozen food) will all help induce spawning. Keep in mind that the fish must first be mature enough to spawn, and any other fish/animal in the tank can either inhibit spawning habits and or eat eggs quickly.
I will do some checking for you to see if there is anything else that may help, but lots and lots of decorations will help most of all, especially plants.
What is their temp? How many of them are there and how big of a tank are they in? What are water params reading for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and kh?
