View Full Version : Purple firefish strange behaviour

07/07/2017, 07:57 AM
In the ongoing saga of my weird pair of purple firefish a new behaviour/issue has come up.
I previously asked for opinions on whether I had a true pair as they don't hang out together at all during the day but share a burrow at night, digging it out together. The smaller one has always been afraid of the larger one. The big one has a pointed top fin, the other a rounded one.
We didn't really reach a consensus, though most people were negative
Now for the past week the bigger one has taken to hiding under a rock all the time and the smaller one hovers around above the rock chasing away the damsels and anthias. The big one hasn't lost weight or body condition though I haven't seen it eat anything. They both still sleep together at night and the small one now visits the big one under the rock during the day.
Could they have spawned?

It's very possible that they spawned.
