Uh----wow.

So, I go home at lunch and there is a free for all going on in my 29g planted tank. The male and female Kribensis are doing some ancient mating dance around the tank, two male false Julii Corydoras are pestering the female and she is going nuts swimming up and down the back glass, my female White Cloud is making bombing runs through my Wisteria and Im pretty sure I saw my Rainbow Shark winking at my Neon Tetras-lol.

So, did the Kribensis male that I put in there last night set off some weird mating ritual or did my wife drop an aphrodisiac into my tank when I wasnt looking? Hopefully I dont end up with a tank full of babies ( not very likely with the mix of critters I have in the tank. )

The same thing happened with me the other night, the Dwarf Neons were putting on a show that would make Cirque du Soleil jealous, the thread fins were flaring like there was no tomarrow, the Glow lights were circling each other like a square dance, and my lone Dwarf Gourami was busy pestering the shrimp by pushing water at them, and stealing their food. Quite a show.

You having thunderstorms there in GA anything like we're getting down here?

Because that's a trigger for many tropicals- start of the monsoon season.

Hmm.. The night my fish went frantic there may have been a small storm that rolled through, but nothing to large. Days before though man we had some HUGE storms.

My rainbows and otos were going nuts last week, when we had some pretty big storms going through.
