This is probally a silly question but i was a little worried when I didn't see MTS babies in the gravel after 2 weeks.

I just saw my first MTS baby today after about a month of putting 6 in my tank. Assuming there are more in the gravel. Hang in there, you'll see them soon enough.

i had a juvenile MTS added to my tank about a year or so ago, i now have hundreds. Dont encourage breeding, it will happen on its own. They reproduce asexually as well as sexually so its kind of impossible to stop the breeding.
