Is it okay to keep and breed a 1.1 pair of pygmy chams because I am reading a lot and some people keep them like this while others says the female will get to stressed.

Introduce another one or two females to ease the stress from the male

I agree, I would always keep one male to 2-3 females

They are now thankfully quite easy to keep alive and to breed but the laying process takes a huge amount of the females Ca reserves and many do not live that long after laying.

I think that this can be improved upon by adding liquid Ca to the water/misting/rain systems.

Then if your UV system is re-creating the wild index this should help to keep them ready for the next period of laying.

small calci worms may help also.
