"Fighting With a Passion" - Thorichthys pasionis

Post by Jim Cumming » Tue Aug 13, 2013 10:43 pm

I have two pair of Thorichthys pasionis that are about 14 months old in a 90G tank. Up until now, they have pretty much been minding their own business. But today, I noticed that the pairs were "taking an interest" in one another (quite an understatement). They are trying to secure sites for breeding... one pair in a flower pot at the front of the tank, and the other, back behind a wall of flower pots. Each is obviously feeling threatened by the other pair's presence, and is getting rather agitated. Here they are, in full breeding dress , going at it... 'fin to fin'. (I couldn't resist :lol: ).
