Interesting Behavior Observed

Cindy have noticed something rather interesting in the large Loach tank that I have never seen before.

The Loaches are Housecleaning!

There is a spot in the tank behind some of the mopani that is fairly secluded. I had hoped when I initially made the mopani "heap" that the fish would use it as a cave. Much to our surprise all of the loaches (Yoyo's, Clowns, Striata's and Tiger) have all started depositing empty snail shells there!

Has anyone else seen this sort of "burial ground" before?
