Any of the M. splendida "tribe" seem to be easier. When you are an RSG
member, to judge by earlier postings to the list, breeding Threadfins
(Iriatherina werneri) and Pseudomugil (Poppondetta) (or are they
Poppondychthys now) conniae will become easier - maybe that's why I can't
breed them ;) Seriously, M. eachamensis seems to be quite prolific as
well... Can you source either of these from local pet stores?
