I hope this transmission works, for as long as I have belonged to the
I have not sent any messages.

I have had H. Formosa for many years and in my experience if the
temperature of
your tank remains high, they will breed all year long.  However, the
brood size
will diminish and the fish will have a short life span.  If you let the
temperature drop in winter, there may still be some babies.  But the
will bulk up, live longer, and drop a larger amount of fry come spring
summer.  Over all, it seems better to let the temperature drop.
