    Hey guys,

    I reintroduced the two groups of bandensis tonight and the fireworks were spectacular!

    Wow, I can't believe you had all four males in a display! That's mine doubled... I love it when they spread their arms wide like that. Thanks for sharing.

    Thales,
    We are looking at three males and two females?

    Heh,

    There are three females in there and they all seem to be that kind of girl. I am amazed that the four males will be going at it on one side of the tank and a female will swim all the way over to 'get some'. Sometimes, 3 males will be blustering while the other male is 'getting some' a few inches away.

    What is really interesting to me right now is the size difference between the males and females. The males are HUGE this time around!
