Encouraging MTS

I have added 10 MTS into my 10 gallon tank. It there any way i can encourage them to reproduce? How long will it take them to reproduce?

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.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks, Can MTS ever be too old to breed?

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.
