I was just watching my tank today and I noticed that 2 of my 4 green chromis were being kind of weird. I noticed that they were kissing. This is the first time they've ever done this. Is this how they breed? Also after they kissed, they would go after my smallest green chromis and nip him once and then kiss again.

Are you sure they were kissing and not fighting? Two dempseys at work were fighting like that. They'd latch onto one anothers lips and swim backwards. Then they'd chase the others that were in there and lip fight each other some more. I think your green chromis are fighting, not kissing. But, saltwater fish may act differently than jacks. Just giving my opinion...

Byez! Very Happy

They were not fighting with each other. They weren't I guess you could say wrestling while they were mouth to mouth. Like I said, they would kiss each other and hang onto each other like that for about 10-15 seconds and then they would nip at my smallest one once and then would start to kiss again for another 10-15 seconds.
