These are partly suggestions William, and partly questions directed =

Would it help to introduce the female just before lights out and to =
remove her an hour or two after daylight? With really aggressive plant =

that some of the eggs laid on mops, plants, gravel or what-have-you =
would hatch where ever they were laid.
In my small experience with a nice trio of incisus I picked up one time, =
my biggest issue was what in the world to do with the hundreds of eggs =
left that first day. The numbers were just staggering (a credit to my =
source, not me.)
I realize all of the above involve spending more time and/or money. It's =
fun spending other people's money. ;)
All the best!

I've tried to breed my G incisus 4 times with no luck. I started off =
by putting 2 females and one male together. The male killed one of the =
females. I've tried to mate the remaining female with each of the other =
males separately with no luck. The males are slightly larger than the =
females but not enough of a differential that should make a difference.
