Thread: lookin for love

  1. Default lookin for love

    all--
    Im not entirely sure, but it think two of my Australian rainbows(out of 6) might be smitten with each other. All night they have been swimming very close to each other and fairly slowly, occasionally doing this twisty corkscrew type motion with each other. All my bows are still coloring up, but one has a yellow tail, and the other a cranberry reddish color. They'll hang out for a bit, then separate then come back to each other. No violence or anything, it looks pretty relaxed and is at different levels and in different areas of the tank. Am i seeing an early form of mating behavior? Are they going to pair up? Just wonderin what they might be up to. thanks!

    I have dwarf rainbows which have similar colors - red fins for boys and yellow fins for girls. I've currently have 5 females and 1 male, and he has definately picked out his favorite. He'll swim up ahead of her and flash his fins and they'll do the dance and all that. Sounds like you have a pair.
