Today In The Fishroom~4/29/11 F0 P.managuense "Honduras"

The pair are beginning to breed in their new tank.

The male





The female...a little ticked at the intrusion.



A lot of posturing and lip locking







They selected a nice flat stone for breeding...field stone from our farm...nice stuff.

Flashing the female...or maybe that was dodging a side strike.



Him chasing her...



Her chasing him...



And so it goes...

Two more. The pair had a regular breeding spot in the old tank. The larger tank affords them a few different choices. The female seems to prefer the old standby piece of bowl shaped slate. The male seems to be very interested in leading her back to the large strawberry pot....something that was too large for the last tank. If you look at the pictures above you will notice that the male organ is down and ready for action. The female is not there yet.....but....haven't most of US males been there as well? LOL

I have 23 tanks...the smallest is 75 gallons. About 3500 total gallons of freshwater. These fish are by themselves in a 125 gallon tank.
