Have you seen any signs of spawning? Tell us a bit about their behaviors.

No sign of spawning, probably too many other tank mates.
The pair is always together, except at night.
In the morning they are asleep at differant parts of the tank.
They both love to eat at the waters surface.
Lots of river shrimp and O.S.I. spirulina flake.
N.L.S. 3mm pelletts too.
