I have 6 RBP's about 2 inches in length. They are in a 180 gal tank and doing well. If my ultimate goal is to try to breed them, would it be recommended to wait until i find two of them doing the circle dance (Assume that they are male and female) and then remove the other 4 to a separate tank thus providing the assumed breeding pair with a large area to themselves? I couple years ago I had 6 rbp's in the same tank and after a year or so two of them did the circle dance thing off and on for days but i never noticed any Fry. I wondered at the time and since then about whether I should have segregated them for better success. Your thoughts? Thanks in advance to the Breeding team for any help!

If they pair off with the others present then spawnning conditions are optimum. Changing any parameters will change spawnning conditions thus delay the spawnning process. Like I tell others "Just let them be."

Your tank space to piranha ratio is large enough to support breeding activity.
