Hi All,

It's been a while since I saw these Auchenipterichthys coracoideus do anything interesting, but tonight I observed two adults (I estimate 8-10cm SL each) get into a clasped spiral and swim to the water surface before breaking off. Sadly, I found no eggs tonight. But I'll check again tomorrow.

P.s. these fish LOVE Cobalt brand shrimp pellets!

Cheers, Eric

In this screen capture, you can see the male really twisting his anal fin while trying to inseminate the female:
