    I know nothing about rainbows, When you Googled 'Bosmani Rainbow spawning/mating behaviour' did anything describing/picturing what your seeing come up?

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I didn't think they would dance lol so that's why I had a thought it may be some type of mating dance they are constantly doing that and it's kind of annoying because they stay in that corner or another corner most of the days , will adding more stop that or make it more competitive ? I plan on getting two more this weekend or early next week like Monday or Tuesday . I was pretty sure they bothe where males when I bought them so to ask if they where mating felt kind of dumb but I thought all dominace was more like flaring and chasing .... Would getting all males bring out more color or throwing in a female make them color up more or it doesn't matter with rainbowfish? Thnks.
