Shistura behavoir

Post by Allen Repashy » Fri Sep 14, 2012 6:06 pm

Hey everyone,

I have a group of Shistura pridii in my new Hillstream tank and am observing some interesting behavior. I have not worked with this genus before, so maybe someone who has experience, can translate some of this behavior.

It appears to clearly be a male and female. They have paired up out of the group and are hanging out together. Sometimes they just sit together still, and other times they begin this ritual..... appears to me to be a little aggression, and a little courtship. I know that successful breeding of these types of loaches is rare, so I am just wondering if this behavior is common, or something good is happening.

Cheers, Allen
