By the topic title I bet your confused. As am I. I have a trio of 3 Which I thought 2 males 1 female. Typically my larger male was dominant but after a fight my second largest became dominant always chasing my largest male. I should mention that my largest has a larger head and high back. He rarely shows his colors now. Well the other day I witnessed my second largest which is dominant doing a spawning ritual with my male red zebra. My hap kept picking up sand as if they were eggs. After a minute they seperated. Today I woke up and my "dominant male" is holding. It's been "chewing" for 30 minutes and seems more reclusive and much less aggressive. I will try to get a picture when my girlfriend comes back with her camera. I should mention last week my known female was holding for about a week until swallowing her eggs. As I type this their spawning again!!! Sorry I type this on my iPod can't space paragraphs.
