new member with questions
i have recieved a new tank complete with fish. its a 29 gal tank with cichlid sand in it and rocks and such.. with this came 1) 2.5 inch demasoni and 3) yellow labs... now i have read a ton on how i need a larger tank but at this time not possible. in the future def.. but i need to see if i can keep these guys alive. Here in a nut shell is the quesion. my male demasoni is doing the mating dance with the large yellow lab i belive is a female.. every one gets along fine.. but is this normal? . plenty of hiding places.. and he dont chase her often,, but at least once or twice a day he is in hot pursut.. she is able to get away and he then leaves her alone.. also.. is it normal for the 3 yellows to hang like schooling fish? that seams to be what they do.. anther odd behavior is they seam to swim from the bottom to the top and and zig zag up and down the tank for a good while in the evenings.. only about 10 minutes and then they just hang out for a while,, funy thing is.. at this time.. the demasoni just seams to watch while she and the other 2 labs do this.. any idea? or help is apprecatied,, and plese excuse my spelling.. not my strong suit! :) thanks
