A little soft light, some Seals & Crofts playing "Summer Breeze" in the background... and fish gettin it ON !
It must be spring !

Last week my ancistris were getting frisky in their cave - this week my male is guarding eggs.
the same day I saw that, I saw my gardneri killie's diving into their java moss together...
And earlier this week I saw some unexpected 1" long peacock cichlids ( aulonocara jacobfreibergi "eureka" ) sneak out of the rockwork to grab some baby brine shrimp

It seems the only fish not breeding in my tanks right now are my Ameca splendens -- egglayers breeding, livebearers celibate -- its like the end of Ghostbusters, "Cats and Dogs living together, mass hysteria"... of course I cheat, there are few fish easier to breed than ancistris, gardneri killies, or malawi cichlids...

(and I think the Ameca's prefer Barry White...)

So - anybody else have any fish breeding as the snow melts ?
