FULL MOON: ARE YOUR FISH SPAWNING?

Nerms, I want to ask for a show of fins:

Did any of your fish spawn, lay eggs, or drop fry between January 26 and Jan 31??

I am just curious. We find that a full moon (often combined with a water change) seems to mark off spawning sessions in our fishroom. Maybe it's all in my head . . . but it _seems_ far too common to ignore.

I did a some water changes last weekend because we had a front come through last Sunday and Monday, and I got eggs from Aspidoras spilotus, Cory weitzmani and Cory venezuelanus. Unfortunately, the venezuelanus ones might not have been fertile, they all fungused over the next day, but they are still young fish.

Had eggs all over the glass on several cory tanks this morning. I am on daily auto water. Pinellas park florida. It also poured down rain randomly for about an hour a day or so ago first time in a while.

 

Edit. Just found this really cool site while trying to see when it actually rained.

I don't know 😉 The only thing in my collection that gets pretty randy are my African Dwarf Frogs.  They were definitely hugging and holding on tight with each during this period, but not sure if more than normal.  Anyhow already got enough tadpoles to worry about at the moment. 😉 

That's interesting, I noticed my dwarf frogs started going crazy this past week as well. Lots of calling and embracing activity compared to their normal frogginess. 

My guppies and platys, on the other hand, do not show any lunar cycle preference for their reproductive shenanigans.
