View Full Version : Altolamprologus Herder Fish

Some of you may have seen I have my 100g up and running and the primary fish are my Calvuses (what do you call >1 Calvus?) and Comps.

Along with them are the 10 barbs I used in the cycle of the tank.

Now for some Twilight Zone Behavior :18:

My Inkfin calvus and Orangefin Comp would work together to herd all of the barbs into the right side of the tank next to the lace rock structure.
Any of the barbs that made a break for it were summarilly chased back to the "herd".

Once all of the barbs were there, the two herders would swim off back to the driftwood/planted side of the tank.

Next they'll be wearing cowboy hats or some such headgear.
Heck, who knows, they do come equipped with built in toothy shears - sheep?

After watching this happen three times today, I figured whats next? My Mbuna's plant their own crops?

All in all, it has been a rather unique day :22:
