I bought 3 HGs on Saturday (1 male and 2 females). I've noticed that the 2 females like to do a swimming dance when they get close together on each side facing opposite directions and would swim in circles for a few seconds. Is this a breeding behavior? Could one of my females be a juvenile male? The two females usually ignore the male.
The world, its come undone, Like to change it everyday, Change don't come from one. Its a wave, building, before it breaks.

Yes, it does. I would slow down the current so the male can build a bubble nest. Floating plants wouldn't be a bad idea either. Wink

Mat, I bet that male HG looks awesome right about now! I never had the pleasure of having one in my tank (or seeing a live one at that).
