courting or two males fighting?

We all know how difficult it is to identify the sex of these fish, so please post a picture in here and we'll try to help you (or at least give an educated guess!).

courting or two males fighting?

Post by BRIAN09 » Thu Nov 22, 2012 8:36 pm

Here is a short video i think they might be courting then again could be two males! i bought 5 zebra plecs that were around 18months old about 2 years ago and then another 3 from a different blood line but they were only around 8months old just getting worried i might have bought all males :( I know the younger 3 are to young to sex but the 1st five are looking like all males 3 have taken up caves

Sorry, looks like a male trying to take over a cave, the male that's in there does not give his place up though.
Greetings,
