Loach breeding behavior or just fired up Dwarf Chain Loaches?

Recommended Posts

I did a pre storm water change, tank temperature Slight raise and added more tanins on a 50 gallon tank reset. Primarily seeing a ton of breeding from khuli loaches in floating plants. The tank is 50 gallon higher flow with colony of  L169 candy Stripe pleco / colony of L129 Columbian Zebra / colony of 12 Dwarf chain loaches. 

My question is I fed frozen tubifex for the first time post reset and they really lost their minds to me this has the look of breeding behavior with the faded colors being the larger loaches and the thinner loaches being highly defined in stripes. Anyone have any thoughts?

Probably breeding when they are up in the mid water. They spawn mid water and have the eggs fall into crevices.

My yo-yo loaches are doing the same thing. They turn a very dull color and they seem to,swim in a tight circle together...
