    I've got 4 white clouds. 1 looks very pregnant, but hasnt had fry for 1 month (since i bought it).
    Pic shows the huge bump

    A few others are acting kinda weird. I dont know if they are being territorial, mating, and just playing. the youtube clip shows the behavior.
    At 14seconds they do it closer to cam.

    White Clouds are egg scatters (meaning as they swim they scatter eggs and the male comes along behind and fertilizes them). The plump ones are females and the more slim ones are males. If your tank is heavily planted you may get a couple of fry but most eggs scatters are notoriuos for eating their eggs.

    Hi xev,

    There are 2 really plump ones in there....by the the video, the male seems to be flaring and courting the female. You ought to check out the web on "spawning white cloud mountain fish" see if there are any good pointers for them to lay the eggs. They probably scatter them in the plants.
    I've never had any of them so can't be much help...but do a search on spwning them.
