Has anyone else got any opinions, they have been in their new tank now for a month and 3 of them have taken a cave and the other 2 have taken to hiding under bog wood or beside a big stone, does this indicate sex - if they take caves?

Cheers for your thoughts, like most breeders I would have preferred more females but if I have at least 1 then I have a chance of breeding.

Now i have had him for over 1.5 yrs and he seems to still be very small. Are they slow growers? And the articles i have read say he should get to about 8" Has ...
