    HI everyone,
     
    Over the past few days I have noticed that all my fish (mentioned in the title) are huddling together. Some have gone in pairs others have stayed together. I am not sure if I am correct but is this a form of mating occuring? Any suggestions would be great.
     
    Many thanks,

    Are they just schooling?

    Yes must they are hiding in the corner under my filter, not moving. I just think its a bit odd; but sometimes they do come out in pairs and then go back into hover mode with the reast of the group.
     
    many thanks,

    Tiger barbs are egg scatterers, if they were spawning you'd see increased activity not less.
    Have you tested your water? Fish huddling together is not a good sign especially for tigers who are usually very active.

    And if they are indeed mating, that is just normal. They are the same fish after all.
