Who bred in my hillstream tank??
I had just finished a water change on my 40 gallon hillstream aquarium and was in the middle of cleaning the glass when I saw this cute little guy grazing on a rock. Perhaps I missed something in my research of each species before adding them, but it was my impression that most who inhabit this tank do not readily breed in the home aquarium. There are groups of each of the following species in the tank:
Dwarf chain loach
Siamese algae eater (not a possible culprit, too small to be mature)
Bamboo shrimp (obviously not a possible culprit)
Any help identifying him would be greatly appreciated, i’m curious as to which species I can expect more of.
