Male platy mating dance/Ritual
 
I have 6 platies and two of the males keep doing the strangest thing. They swim almost side by side and there tails and fins are fanned out wide and they do this sideways shimmer thing its hard to describe but its so weird. I am a newbie with platies is this normal !

they are trying to assimilate dominance in the tank i guess.it's either that or they are trying to get the female's attention
