    I imagine it’ll take her 2-3 weeks to get back into condition, but I have two other females looking pink’n’ready, plus I’ve put the other male in there to give the original male something to think about, might make him try that bit harder.

    Pic from yesterday while my pheasants were roasting….
    What we have there is a male on the left displaying to a female, while another female tries to get involved. Tramp!

    From the left..
    two gravid females, expecting a spawn off one/both any day this week, and then the one that spawned.

    I hope that isn’t a euphemism…

    No, I’d been peeling my chestnuts though while taking the pictures…

    A trip to Aqualife has found me the most perfect little piece of bogwood to give them something to think about, cheap as could be hoped for and just what I’d been looking for, along with some Crystal Hatchets (C. myersi) to add a bit of top-water movement.

    They’re not bad seeing as how they were just quick snaps on my little Panasonic compact. Could quite get into this fishkeeping lark!

    They’ve spawned again today, different female, there’s a load of eggs under a leaf. I cleaned the tank up yesterday so have been getting a few crappy snaps. Again the male is a bit disinterested, the female is being quite aggressive towards him in a naggy sort of way. Women!!

    Good news they’ve gone again. Is it normal in Biotoecus that the male doesn’t play much part in broodcare?

    or, like a chav, totally lose interest post-fertilisation.

    Depends on what benefits are available surely?

    Interesting that they don’t attempt to conceal the eggs at all. Great pics Pete.
