CRS males going crazy


Recommended Posts

Upon looking at my tank of CRS i noticed that the males are a lot more active and running around the tank like crazy chasing any female in sight. Is this a normal behavior? I read that it could mean that a female is berried and releasing pheromones but I'm not sure.

This is good and means you have a female that has freshly molted.  When that happens the females give off a scent that is irresistible to males so the males swim around like crazy trying to find her to breed with her.  It for sure is normal behavior.  She is not berried yet when this is going on but most likely will be shortly once a male finds her.  Congratulations on having a soon to be berried female.
