Towards each other? Dominance behavior.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

haha, yup. my mbuna do it all the time. I freaked out at first when I first saw them doing it, it looked like they were having a seizure. I've also read that sometimes if it's a male he's trying to show off to the females, but most likely dominance.
