Breeding pair or just friends
 
Well after having my bolivian rams for a month and a half, they have finally stopped hating each other and started to pair up. Is this a mating pair or is just friends? I havent been able to sex them yet and just last week they were on opposite ends of the aquarium frequently lip-locking.

I wouldn't raise my hopes that they are pairing up to breed.:)

well after two days of pairing up theyve separated again and seem to not like each other anymore.... oh well :(

will males and females fight or is it just male vs male or female vs female?

The only time mine seem to lock lips is when they are eating pellets i put in for the corys. I can't get them to go to the top to feed they rarely go up past half way the tank and the platys and mollys very rarely let any food make it past half way.So basically the only food they mostly get is the shrimp pellets.

Regardless of their gender, they will still fight.:)

Well thats a little relief cause i was getting worried that i had all males and no females, I guess time will tell to what i actually have, but my fingers are crossed that i have at least one female out of the bunch...
