I have a 5 foot long 140 and I dont know what it is but anytime I put a colony in it they spawn. I got my kaps 1 month ago. They started out in a 6 foot 125 and a week and a half ago I put them in the 140 and they spawned Christmas day. Fourth time I put a colony of fronts in that tank and they spawned with in a month.

I've got 2 180's and 1 150. Had spawns in all the different tank. Splitting the groups so they are a small colony (between 4 and 7) has really been the difference between getting spawns and not getting them.
