My two dwarfloaches started with some weird behavior last night when I had quite a big change in water.
They started swimming next to eachother, wiggling their tails and rubbing bellys and I`m quite sure that I saw a greyish cloud of something between them for a few seconds.
My question is....
How do botias breed ? colud it look like the behaviour I tried to explaine here ?
How likely is it that eventual egg`s will be eaten ?
How long before they hatch ?
What do the small ones eat ?
how fast do they grow ?
THey currently have a mixed diet of mosquitolarvae, flaked food, granulate food, cucumber, squash and other vegetabiles plus eventual snails and snaileggs they find in the tan
