my acei's have started to dig a little hole, and it looks to be a male(just guessing, but more color) sitting in the hole, trying to lure what looks to be the female in... if so, usually at what size does this start, cause they are probably only around 2" in length... they do this all the time, mainly in this area in pic, but i did see them do the same thing in the back corner of the tank also... let me know what you think.
thanks

:thumb: I don't know at what size they start but yours are plenty big to get the friction on.

I have had labs and socolofi breed at that size. The males are just starting to realize they are male and that someone else is a girl. It make take them a while to get all the parts in the correct order and orientation, but it is definitely a start.

Awwww that is soooo cute. She looks like she's kinda smiling and proud and he looks likes he's surprised the camera caught him with his hand in the cookie jar. Really great pic :thumb: You know you kinda like fish ALOT when you start seeing expressions on their faces :roll:

I'll tell you what, if I had the resources to have it be that the pet/fish stores buy all of their fish from me, it still would take years for me to earn back all of the money that I have spent in their stores! I know I need new shoes and my kids need lunch money for school, but my Malawi's need more NLS and Dainichi pellets! What to do... :lol:
