Ok, my previous attempt at breeding these was interesting. They had the tank all to themselves, I'm guessing around 100 fry hatched. Unfortunately the fry started to disappear and then the male died. (I'm assuming that the male was eating the fry, so the female killed him). Eventually all the fry were gone and I was left with only the female.
She has had the tank to herself for a month or so now, and there is a bit of algae developing, so I put an Otocinclus in there.
Today I added a new male Kribensis and they are definitely getting along, so I am predicting babies again in the near future. I've heard that Kribensis will basically annihilate anything else in the tank to protect their young. Do you think the Oto will be ok? If not, what about a small Pleco?
