Default Are my erets breeding??

Gosh! After 8 months of nothing much, a lot is happening in my tank. While I was watching my Kalambo colony for bloat issue, I noticed one of my goby is not eating..

I got worried and watched them then they start doing( what seems to me) breeding dance (?).

Here is the video and the picture of goby that is not eating.





What do you think?? Are they breeding??

Yessir. Give it about 10 days (+/-) fro the day that they spawned and you should see the male holding them.

well... so much for the first breeding.. the holding female is eating again which may mean no egg holding..

however, does this dance mean I have a breeding m/f pair??

Ah to bad. It'll happen again. The male must not be mature enough. Or to much water flow in the tank.

I believe that you have a Winner, Winner, Fishy Dinner!
