Hello
I have 2 Botia dario which I have had for about 4 years now (Called tigers by my daughter) recently one of them has started to bury itself in the gravel and the other helps and lies on top does this mean that there may be some babies if so what can I do to ensure their survival ?
any advice will be gratefully received .
Thank you in advance P.West

Loach's do that, it is normal.

I would recommend changing your gravel to sand to better fit the needs of the loach. Read this article:
