Further to that article they need soft water and some broad leaved plants as they spawn underneath the leaves. I'm sure I remember an article in PFK where the author had had success only with older males and younger females!

I'd soften the water, up the amount of frozen and/or live food you feed them (I find artemia excellent for conditioning parent fish as well as feeding babies on) and keep your fingers crossed!
