    It's really hard to tell. Triggers like to dig a lot of the time anyway. Often they are just looking for things to eat.

    Thanks Dave.

    I was going by the behaviour afterwards as well - very guarded and defensive of the area and the female is in the area a great deal since pointing and floating downwards throughout the day.

    As you can imagine I stare at the tank 'alot' so you get to know behaviours etc and it changed yesterday which is why I managed to get it on camera as it just looked like they were about to do something.

    They've been building nests in various places for months and especially at the back last week were it looked like the builders had been in!

    You'll know for sure if you actually see them spawn and you get eggs.
