Yesterday movd those guys to a 75 gallon in my garage, Temp was at 80, but I unplugged it yesterday evening by accident, this morning the tank was at 75F. First thing I saw, Harlequins were hanging up side down against the leaves going over and over again, there were at least 3 pair busy doing this.

I shot 2 videos about this:

They are still busy doing there thing, I was thinking to cut all the leaves off, but it will be for next time.

Are they pregnant?

Could be a response to a parasite if they are not pregnant.

Could also be microbes growing from algea

That is so cool! I have to say that is the fattest Harlequin I've ever seen, LOL! I also like your Ram kinda checking to see if you're going to feed him...

No, they are not pregnant. Egg layers carry eggs.

they are parasite free.

and nope, they are laying eggs and the male is fertilizing them.

I enduced spawning by accident. Thats why i have this behavior.

I don't know if they are fat, I have at least 10 female H Rasboras who are that fat and round. I think they just look like females.
