Hi there

I have these fish as well and I really love them!!!! Unfortunately I have never seen them mate.

I put 3 in the tank a few years ago in January this year I had to break the tank down. After the breakdown I had about 20!!! I never saw more than 2 at a time.

My tank is heavily planted and you never see the bottom dwellers especially these guys. I am sure you will find information on their breeding behaviour on the net somewhere.

Enjoy them they keep the floor of the tank clean.
