Na I haven't measured them yet but the two bigger ones would be 10 or so, the smaller one was in the cave today with the other one I thought was a female guarding it, so I might wait a couple days and see if anything happens,
Thanks for the help so far

sounds like the one you thought was a female could well be a male..... :)

I know it's a bit of an old post. But thought I'd throw it out there.
In my experience the one thing that makes breeding peppies different to other bristlebums. Is that I found to trigger spawning with my Peps in the past, you had to switch the tank off for like four hours. Just let it go dead, no airation, no heater, nothing for about four hours or so. Then fire it back up.
I don't know why, but in my experience this extra step was required to breed my peps, where as commons, albino's, calicos, long fins, silver tips, etc. etc. did not really need this step.
I hope this helps someone in their quest to breed this fantastic fish. :)
