Just looking at the poll results thus far.
Just a word of caution on interpreting the results.
It would appear that the 125-135 gallon tanks are the most successful. I'd say probably not true. Just the fact that many people have tanks that size. 300 gallon tanks would be equally successful, just that hardly anyone has one.
To be fair with this question, you'd have to ask only breeders to respond who have used ALL sizes of tanks.

I have a 125 a 150 and a 110 gallon stock tank. The stock tank actually does quite well, but it's hard to see when there is a holding female. The fish really seem to like the 150. I realize spawns happen in 125's often, but the extra depth of the 150 really seems to help keep aggression down, and frankly they just look cooler making more broad sweeping turns.

ok- newbie question. Is a larger footprint more desirable vs depth or does it have to be monster size tank.
What about lighting?
Muted?
Guess what I'm asking is everything to get a successful spawn. LOL

Working with limited space is a bummer as my tank is only about 60G. footprint is 42X24, height 16" only.

I know having a harem is desirable but what if it's only 1 male 2 females or 2 males one female to minimize the size of the tank?[crowding rather]

The fellas are still small- a year + old. So need to plan this. Already have a bigger tank standing by. 280G but will have to convert it to hard water.
