Cory, this is very normal for the M. altispinosa. They are not cave
spawners but open pit spawners. Mine also took 2 years before ready for
spawning. I no longer have any since I sold the last of the 4th
generation a couple months ago. The biggest thing I found out about
spawning them is they do not like bright light over their tank. At least
this has been my experience with keeping and breeding them.

I hope this helps.
