I have been working on conditioning this group of catfish for a few months. When I got them they were thin, but not a single fish died. I have always liked this species, but never had any success breeding them. But neither have I ever had this many at one time. I noticed breeding behavior for the first time a couple weeks ago, but the catfish shared the tank with some rainbow fish grow outs and a LOT of horn wort. I got all that cleaned out over the weekend, did a big water change and added the yarn mops you will see in the video. I noticed that the fish were spawning when I went into the fish room at about 5:00 this afternoon.
