So I've read that Angelfish will lock lips or "kiss" whenever they are 2 males competing over territory, or whenever a prospective couple is testing each other.
I recently bought 3 Scalare Angelfish, and all are currently doing very well in my setup.
To my surprise, I found two Angelfish locking lips a couple of times. I assumed they may just be 2 males fighting over whatever it is Angelfish fight over, but then I noticed that these same 2 angels were pretty much inseperable and always shoal together. Meanwhile, the other Angelfish very rarely shoals with the other two, but more often than not keeps to himself in the aquarium.
Would anyone who has had experience with Angelfish identify this as a (potentially) mated couple?
Assuming that this is a mated couple, could they become hostile to the other fish or to each other in the near future?
