there is one method I have found quite sucessful and that can be found on my website

since the site went live many people have told me of another method that works more often than not. and that method is as follows

perform a gravel vac into a bucket.
place a heater into the bucket and set at 26c.
wait 24-36 hrs. if eggs were present you should see
some fry clinging to the bucket walls, if not
discard and try on the next gravel vac.

if fry are found transfer them (via a turkey baster) to a raising tank
around 10-15G and raise the temp to 28c.
feed infusoria for the first week and then crushed flake and or BBS there after.

Haha, I took my filter out one day and stuck it into a bucket of water no heater or anything. Didn't look when I put the filter back but a couple days later I look into the bucket and had some baby fish. I'll post a pic of the lone survivor as soon as it gets big enough to photograph (those things are TINY, a bring shrimp net can barely pick them up) seems to be growing well now, if you wanna breed them I suggest having a breeding net unless you have a breeder box with absolutely no way out.

please don't put any egg laying fish in breeder boxes/nets, the stress will kill them.

It's just the one baby in there. I don't really have another tank for it to go into (2.5 gallon is down right now, damn filter and I don't have the $$ to replace right now) and I'm pretty sure if it survived the filter this can't be a whole lot worse.
