Color change, mating dance, gravel arrangement, fighting for breeding partner... Yepps, the signs of breeding. NICE!!! Much props if you complete the process of raising frys.


If other than the signs of breeding, you have an overcrowded 125 gal tank full of 12 8"inch RBs giving off warnings or their turf.

I think this is a breeding issue as well. Nice tank set up though but with your tank being so overstocked, maybe you should get rid of some of the stuff in there to allow them to swim around more ?


just a thought.
