1. Ok so I breakdown and buy 2 red tail fairy wrasses, I figure I could put one on either side of the tak and they would be cool with each other. Well I drop the about 16 feet apart and it takes a whole 30 seconds for them to find each other.:rolleyes: Anyway they have been glued to each other and have been doing a slow kinda rubbing of the bodys. I have not seen any aggression at all. So whatcha think???


2 I have a school of anthias. about 8. two of them are inseperable. They do loops around each other all them time. For the last week or so they have been locking thier mouths and kinda spiraling down to the bottom of the tank, then they go under one of the overhangs and kinda just hang out again. So whatcha think???

The spiraling down definitely sounds like mating behavior...well, and all that rubbing, too ;)

The locked jaws I'm not so sure about.

Locking lips is common breeding practice with freshwater cichlids....

Yep I think so to. I caught the small one of the anthias in a real small cave just kinda hanging out:eek: . Filthy ..dirty fish. I went down to the lake and got one of the kids paddles from the shed. Well after a couple of wack on top of the water I dont think they will be doig that kind of behavior in my tank anymore.:D :rolleyes:
