Looking great, I'm currently trying to spawn them too in a species tank only this time, see how it works out.

Do you know how to differentiate their sex just by visual? I'm left with 4 pieces, hope there are males and females inside.

hmm..by visual my male seems much bigger than the female now with a broader body as well....however when i first bought it...they were about the same size..perhaps they were not mature then...took some time for them to grow and display different sizes

behaviour wise...those that do not pair up will usually be chased to the corners of the tank by the pair...in my case as my tank is only 2 ft....and within the pair, the male will have a territory and so will the female, with the male patrolling into the female's every now and then

Nice tank layout for Caudopunctatus species. Look like a good clean environment for them to spawn and enjoying the spacious area for the two adults.
