Do you mean the egg laying or the male aggression?

The eggs are very small about 1.5mm and laid between half way and top of water line. They can lay about 20-60 eggs. I moved a trio to their own small tank as I felt that the males were too interested in having a go at each other but they are not as aggresive as C113 or barbatus males. I found them to be very shy and not as bold as C113 or barbatus.

The funny thing is when I moved them it triggered the other two tanks off so I have them laying in three tanks.

There are some earmarked for you by the way. Will you be going to the CSG auction?.

Great Graham, that's good to hear...you won't be able to stop them now. :)

Your eques have settled in well and the carlae are looking really nice...what a cracking wee cory they are.
When water changing my C.loxozonus tank I noticed a fry darting about but I may have to take the parents out as I have T.exilis woodcats and Microsynodontis in the same tank so I think they are polishing off the fry. :(
