Yes, that does look more like foreplay.

Re: Fish porn: E.sinensis var "red spots"

They went at that for more than an hour? That's amazing. I have only seen hillstreams (in my case gastros) fighting for that long once or twice.

Re: Fish porn: E.sinensis var "red spots"

Sounds like a fish orgy! ;)
When I had L. disparis, I always had two males ganging up on the female so I was never sure if one or both fertilized the eggs.

Re: WTB Hillstreams

Nice. I will have to check mine for the color in the tail. I haven't noticed it before but they seem to hide more these days. The gray color turned into a reddish brown in mine after having them for a bit.

Re: WTB Hillstreams

Congratulations!! Try to get some pics of the fish, particularly the humilis. I would like to see the orange in the tails.

Re: WTB Hillstreams

Good luck!!
I think the most likely way you will find them is by looking through shipments of gastros in stores. I have been looking for viriosis for a few years now. I had three, two of which died soon after I got them and have had one for about 4 or 5 years.

Re: How to teach (hillstream) loaches to eat veggies?

Just a guess, but what is the pH? I have noticed some of my hillstreams will quit feeding when the pH drops to around 6.
