    Aspidoras are funny fish, very like corys in a lot of ways but often with the fast forward button permanently on. They’ve just had one of their ‘mad half hours’ zooming around the tank & then I spotted this one that’d decided to bury itself, this is a relatively new behaviour from this group but one they seem to be doing more often lately.
    Excuse the detritus I’d not long removed some wood & disturbed it.

    Is it weird that I thought that was some sort of sea creature hiding in sand? Like an octopus?

    Where did you get yours? I don’t see them for sale very often.
