s/a breeding question
 
my green terror laid eggs so i decided to go find a male terror i found one but he is 2 times bigger than her which i guess it is good since people told me it is best to find a male bigger than her since she established the 55 gallon as her territory so i want to find out if its thunbs up. also i need this asap so i can call the store tell them to save him theres only one that big. the female i have is 2-2.5 inches, the male at the store is 3-4.5 inches

All I have been bale to find is the normal territorial precautions.

Rearrange the entire tank just before you get the male. This will force the female and male to establish new territories in the new surroundings.

As for size, I found nothing about it in my searching. I wold say if that is the advice you have gotten then it is what you have to go by. My only worry would be the larger male being too aggressive but if there is plenty of territorial places it may not be a problem.
