once i put all the wood and caves back in i did a small water change just to top the level up, within an hour all fish were happy again then this skirmish started, it's the longest fight i've seen the almorhae do it started at around 8 pm and when i took this short vid the time was 1. 30 ish AM.
but it's the venom between the fish i wanted to show cos they were really going at it.
had a look at them first thing this morning and except for a few scratches and sore mouths they were mates again.
Normally when mine start it goes on for a couple of hours and the kubotai or rostrata get dragged into it, one of my big males lost an eye during one of the worst disputes.

you have some beatufull fish in there Mick
That sort of behaviour is to be expected if you make your Botia watch Rocky with you.
My fish fight from time to time but I really dont see what they are doing.
1. Do the spines come out?
2. How do they inflict damage.
3. Is this fighting or courtship??? The Almorhae apeared to be targeting the vent area rather than doing the Botia twirl!
That is different than the dizzying round and round that I'm used to seeing from my Kubotai and striata. They got it going a few times but then back to the side by side, slower, and more calculated posturing.Botia Robert wrote:The Almorhae apeared to be targeting the vent area rather than doing the Botia twirl!
