    Question Weird Goodea Body Movements


    0 Not allowed!
    My wife and I set up a small aquarium for her 4th grade classroom. We decided to put Xenotoca Eiseni into it and explain the importance of endangered species with them. I recently picked up some Ameca Splendens for my main tank as well. I have had obvious courting behavior in the Eiseni but not the Splendens yet. Both males of the different species will 'twist' their body in a wave like movement. Similar to how a snake moves. They do not do it whenever a female is near and it is done randomly when floating in the water column. It also does not last long. Just a quick S motion and then they are back to swimming normally. Does anyone know what this is called or why they do it?

    I have not owned corys for about a year and a half so I'm good there (plus I'm one of those people who hates mixing continents lol). There is one pair of Eiseni with three fry in a 20. Then, the Splendens (a trio) are in a 30 temporarily. I am still waiting for my new 60 to come in.
