I have some mainganos and at one point or another I've seen them all twitch for each other. The difference between that and courting I believe is that with courting the male has worked tirelessly on a den, he chases the female back to it, and then only dances there. Doing it anywhere else is probably a territory thing.

Do you (or anyone reading this) know when they become sexual mature? I have an inch long maingano who has built a den and has done some very long courting dances like what I've seen on YouTube where they shake and circle each other for around 5 minutes or so. I don't think he can reproduce this small but I'm just curious.
