I assume Compressiceps.

Keep the water clean.

Feed well but do not overfeed. They love BBS.

Move them to a bigger tank when a move won't hurt them. They need space and water.

Check out This article from another forum on breeding and more importantly raising the fry of Altolamprologus. Pages 3 and 4 have great info regarding raising the fry.

Live or frozen is fine. Both are good.

My fry seem to enjoy a good water change but I do it more often. When and how much is something that you will need to judge for yourself. Start small and observe.

A 15 is definitely better than a 5. 5's water quality can go south quickly.

Siphon uneaten food.

Add snails, shrimp, or small Ancistrus to help with eating extra food.
