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.

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!
