    No problem. I am well aware of the nitrogen cycle. I do not have micro bubbles after water changes. Thanks

    Definitely real cleaning , not pecking. They showed no breeding signs yesterday. Today is their happy day I guess. I will post a YT vid and link it here. So that you guys can confirm.

    When I was trying to take the video they got spooked and now they just stare at the cone. Hopefully they lay.

    I sat still for a bit and for the first time ever for this pair, I saw the bow of grace. (Is that what it’s called?) They stared at each other and then did it. I’m happy to say that they are cleaning slowly again. Yay. Hopefully some eggs in the next week or two.

    Thanks for all your help guys!

    Yay Matt If you want to observe without spooking them sit on something at puts your head level of the tank bottom. Also do not hit them with a flash. Good luck with this.

    So I watched them for a bit. No surface cleaning. What i did see were a tiny bit of (what I think was) shimmering. I also saw the bow of grace. (Is that what it's called?) Is the bow spawning behaviour? I've never seen it from this pair before yesterday. Thanks
