What are my fish doin? fighting or ready to breed?


This is a vid I recorded of my Rasbora lacrimula. I was told that the wee dance theyre doin might be them ready for breedin or spawning but Im thinkin its more of an aggressive thing.
They start about 33 secs into the vid.

What do you guys reckon?

I am not familiar with Rasbora courting rituals but that's what it looks like to me.

They're displaying. Mating is another matter. It'll take the right conditions for them to mate.
