Maybe a X certificate.  :rotfl:  The Black Widow Tetras (there are 7) have been chasing round the tank, looks like they are hoping to mate. two were after one fish, but she wasn't going to play.  Very entertaining first thing in the morning  :fishy1: Before anyone asks, the water parameters were ok, so I have assumed that's what it was all about and I did see a clip on YouTube with the same behaviour.

What a lovely day here in darkest Dorset.  The grass is beginning to gain a bit of colour and stand up, so the next thing will be mowing! Enjoy the rest of sunday

Sounds like typical fish behaviour.

Hmm, I wonder. It is an established fact that doing a water change with water cooler than the tank can stimulate some fish to spawn. That's because it simulates spring causing the snow and ice upstream to melt and bring cooler water down to lower levels. It is well known for cories to spawn after a cool water change particularly if it is timed to coincide with low air pressure. We have just experienced quite a large air temperature drop, which will result in cooler tank water as well. Maybe we'd all better watch our fish to see what happens  ;D

My husband is looking forward to the soil under the front lawn rehydrating and expanding back to meet the edge of the drive.

Frisky fish can be very entertaining.  :)

I'm just enjoying being able to leave the house without factor 50 and a hat.
