A few weeks ago I first noticed the behavior of a male toadifsh (Omegophora armilla) collecting objects and filling a discarded bucket with them. On this dive I found another toadfish behaving in a similar way but this time filling a large sponge.
I wonder if they have completed their collections yet?
What happens when they start to overflow?
Have either suitors attracted a mate yet?
This weekend I plan to go back and visit Toad Hall and see how both are fairing.
