white finned rainbow shark
 
has anyone ever seen these? i just bought one today cause it was really neat looking lol but it seems as if it and my rainbow are mating but i could be wrong

was the species called a white finned rainbow? or was it labeled rainbow and had white fins?

also, by mating are they swiming togeather side by side and wiggling with their mouths wide open?

this is actually fighting and you should watch, because rainbows will kill eachother over territory.

In my experience they are fighting, I have seen redtails do this, they swim side by side and wriggle back and fourth, but if u watch closely its actually a head butting match, Redtails are very very rarley known to breed in aquirums.
