I use normal tapwater (Ph 7 Kh 3 conductivity around 300 microsiemens), no rain or osmoses water.
Due to my job I try to do as many water changes as I can. I try every 5-7 days and then change about 75%.

I feed all my fish Repashy.
The cave I have had for a long time, don't know where it came from. But you can find this type of cave quite easy I think. For a while now I buy all my caves from nature2aqua, based in Germany.

The fish have spawned for the third time :d This time the male could hold on to his eggs for the full 6 day's. The raft of eggs held on to the roof of the cave just by one or two eggs. The male holding the raft up to the roof with his mouth while fanning them with his fins. It was quite a remarkable thing to see. Once the fry started hatching he lost the eggs due to the current in the tank and I placed what I could find in a fry ring.

The juvenile from the first spawn is still doing very well (so are the fry from the second spawn). Here a video, enjoy :YMDAYDREAM:
