Hi all, 

Some diets with high protein content work well. We experienced them on mutants strains that were not laying very well and the mating rate improved within 4 weeks. 

Remember also that"old" fish don't lay well (> 14 months). 

You can also keeep males and females separated during one week to allow eggs accumulation by females. When you 'll do the next mating, you should get more eggs. 

Also, in my experience, some strains are (very) good layers and other not. Good luck!
