I've had my Rubbernose (Bulldog) Plec in my big tank for about 6 months. Yesterday I finally added a Gold Nugget Plec. Right now the Gold Nugget is only about 3/8 inch larger.

This morning they were hanging on the glass next to each other and started to mess with each other. One, usually the Rubbernose, would quickly move toward the other and maybe swish it's tail into it. They would do little half circle moves around each other; darting toward each other and then away.

One will move toward the other and it would move away an inch then come right back and the first one would move away an inch.

Does this sound like aggression or mating?

Aggression - these two won't mate.

OK, that's what I thought. So, I'm assuming that with the size of the tank they are in they should be able to settle into their own territories and I shouldn't have to be concerned about either of them seriously injuring the other?

They could seek each other out so separate them. Sad
