Denison Barbs mating behavior

I read online about a woman who induced spawning in her denison barbs by doing a big water change with cold water from the hose, into an 80 degree tank...

So rather than matching the temp perfectly during my water change I left the temp around 70 (tank is 77)... and the barbs started swimming in small circles and chasing each other. I have never seen them do this before. Does this sound like mating behavior?

75 g. planted peaceful community of denison barbs, cories, neons, boesemani and turquoise rainbowfish, pearl gourami, ancistrus

35 g. long semi-aggressive community of mature m. lacustris, diamond tetras, golden gourami

36 g. bow with pagai praecox and kamaka rainbowfish.

3 pico planted tanks with bettas and nerites.

It's possible. A large flow of cool clean water simulates a large rainfall and can be used to get most fish in the mood.

Cool! Thank you. Maybe I will try again with cool water in the future... especially once I get them in a bigger tank. Is adding cool water dangerous for any of the fish? I think cories like it but what about neons, pearl gourami or boesemani rainbowfish? is it dangerous for them?
