Huh, doesn't it say "Harlequin Rasbora breeding behavior"? Also, you linked to the mobile site.

looks like they are just swiming to me... When they are spawning, you will see the female go belly up under plants with the male up against her.

Well, the first video you linked was mine lol, but the second one doesn't seem to work. They were courting in that video from how I understand it. Mine have tried laying eggs many times after I recorded that, but the water isn't soft enough.

Haha! Whoops! I'm not even sure how I linked that one. I just saw some curious activity from my cpds and I can't find out if they were fighting or spawning. They were basically circling each other. Like chasing each others tails and almost vibrating. I have found mixed reviews about it. I figured this would be the best place to find out

My two most colorful male CPDs do the circle thing pretty regularily, I'm pretty sure it's a form of sparring for the female's affection.

Awesome thanks! Now at least I know who is male and who is female.
