In the multiple spawns of my altispinosa, they layed their eggs on some
small, hard surface like a small rock. Each time, as soon as
the eggs hatched, they would move the wrigglers to their excavated pit.

Does anyone know know if it is normal for M. altispinosa to excavate two inch deep nests- I have a pair that finally spawned after about two years-I had given up on them and started buying Apistos about a year ago(the reason why I am on the list now)- These fish are quite the diggers- my plant tank looks like it went through a miniature Blitzkrieg.
