Possibly as bigger ones tend to take longer to mature.

its always an age versus size issue on maturity....

sometimes a fish may only be 6cm when it breeds but maybe 3 years old...

but i will say i have blown the 5 year male maturity on zebs out of the water... try 3 years.... and a mate i sold fry to says his may even be under 3 years when they first spawned...

it does seem most of the L's breed at a younger age these days... prob something to do with the hormones etc in our water....

Your L66s are still young, my didnt start breeding until they reach around 9cm. Females tends to be abit smaller but my breeder males are around 12 to 13 now as compare to my L333 they stay around 9cm or so.

L66

Thanks for your reply's guys, my L333 would have been only around 18months old when they started up but the spawns were pretty small at first
