Angelicus loaches - spawning, fighting and dancing
Last water change, I think I ran out of hot water so the tank cooled a bit - triggered the spawn. I didn't even have the filters turned back on yet. I can't believe they fit in there.
And here are some other videos
Wasn't sure what they were doing here. The little wiggle looks familiar though
They just love the camera
Boy, you know I just LOVE your Angelicus loaches - so amazing that they spawn in your tank. What is your water hardness and temp, generally? I know there are loads of people who would be thrilled to try to duplicate this behavior in their own tanks. Not an easy thing to get those guys to spawn in captivity. I've never seen it from anyone else. . . but the music leaves no doubt of what's going on in there ;)
Yeah, they are not known to breed in captivity. I have no idea what the hardness is and I don't have a test for it. Honestly, I don't pay any attention to my water chemistry. The temp is usually about 77 - 5 degrees over room temp.
It's really great that you had such a fish spawn ? Do you plan to try to raise any fry in the future ?
No - like with the kuhlis, if any make it great, but I'm not doing anything special for them.
You realize you can reach fishy FAME if you bred botias and Kuhlis right? D:
Oh, COME ON!!! SUPERSTAR JAYSEE???! Gotta nice ring to it! And I'd just LOVE to get my paws on some home-grown loaches ;)
You do have a pretty special thing going on there, J.
