    I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.

    Spawning is a possibility but aggression is equally (if not more) likely. Check this out...

    dont know but they didnt jump. my best guess is my pygmy angle beat them up and they died in the rock work or an evil crab got them. day 2 there were 3 left , day 3 there were 2 purple's left now only 1 purple. I didnt see the pygmy being to mean but he always chases new fish a little. he and my female false perc always beat on each other.
