Boxing Day Breeding

A pair of Pseudogastromyzon cheni were out front and centre engaged in frantic spawning activity this morning. I managed to get a bunch of pictures and even took a movie of the action. I've not had time to dowload the pics yet, but I will asap.
Not sure if it was hormones in the water, but a pair of Gastromyzon punctulatus were also engaged in what appeared to be courtship type behaviour. Just lately, all of this species in the tank have been very active. Shame is, with the mix of fish now in the tank it's extremely unlikely that any babies will survive. The other week, I saw 3 baby cheni, but they dissapeared within a day.
