They are small fish and only get about 1 1/2" wide at the very most.
I do agree that T&B or Algenco would be a great source of info on breeding these guys.:22:

I have had then breed by accident. A friend of mine breeds them regularly. He uses a piece of PVC pipe as a cave.

I feed mine cukes or whatever squash my wife has in the house. I deseed it and microwave it in a little more water for 15-20 seconds. Then I stick it on a fork and drop it in the tank. i remove the left overs after 24 hours. They get there veggies twice a week.
