I have a group of Illanghis they are six years old. got them as fry. My question is......At what age do tropheus stop breeding at? It has been a while now that they are not spawning. My water conditions are good and they are housed alone in a 130 gallon tank. Can anyone offer any hints or tips on this matter?

I've bred tropheus for many years, but never kept track of specific fish ages to see when they stop breeding. However, tropheus will spawn many offspring before they give up the dirty deed. Here's a couple of tips I've learned over the years: First, they are group breeders. Keep at least 8 in a tank. Second, give the brooding females a protected place. That's why honeycomb dolomite works so well (besides the lime it adds to the water). Third, keep your tank clean and do a 1/3 water change 4 days before a full moon. Yes, they somehow sense a full moon and the water change should trigger a spawning cycle.
