What do you think??? I noticed this going on yesterday for the first time. I've had these for about a year, only 2 left of the 4 I started with. I took this last night and this morning there's some major excavation in the sand, big holes! I'm thinking someone has been digging up and eating eggs. Many suspects but the sinibotia pulchra and s. balteata are at the top of the list. Not much chance of survival I fear but I'd love to have some more.

I can't say that they dug the holes Mick. I just sort of put 2 & 2 together there in my own mind, it could have been anyone doing the digging.

I would say two males as well, that sort of behaviour is quite common in the Sewellia's. The Male spotted Sewellia that I have are forever topping each other like that.
