Clown Killifish / Rocket Spawning?


I think my Clown Killifish may be spawning.

My female suddenly spent the day inspecting the bottom of the tank and poking under the wood and rocks, when normally she doesn't leave the waterline ever, and she and the male have been chasing each other around all weekend. Right before I started the video, the male darted under the log with her, and then left early in this video. She stuck around. Anyone think that's what is going on? The CPDs won't let the fry live, even if they let the eggs be long enough to hatch, but it's still exciting!

Thanks, they're nice. They hang out exactly at the water line 90% of the time, so you almost never see them, and they are kind of skittish. I saw footage on YouTube of a tank FULL of them, which was pretty entertaining.
