Couple of questions as my sevs have started behaving unusually. rotkeil is posturing and he and the larger red are starting to be territorial of some tankspace in front of a piece of large bogwood - It's only a couple of feet from where the uaru are digging!!!!
So questions are do you reckon I'm right in my opinion that the rotkeil is a male ( still small), the red is a female (Looks a little fat and ripe) and they are initiating courtship?
Although it's unlikely that fry will survive, is it more likely to get a mix of red and rotkeil or a brood of unwanted hybrids?

Posturing


Nicely "scribbled" head?


"ripe" female?


Almost forgot- red is 6.5 -7" rotkeil is about 4 -4.5"
