Sorry that I have been away. I had 4-way bi-pass surgery. I have to sell my fish business - IBCs - $50.00 each or make offer. Pure strain Blue Tilapia fingerlings 1 plus inches at $1.00 each or make offer. Phone inquiries welcome, ask for Phil Three Six Zero-Six Nine Seven-7880. I live in Poulsbo, Washington.
Sean I watched the video and it appears to be pre mating activity. the male has claimed a location and is chasing off others to protect it. the two fish are probably both males battling each other.
you will see the male chase off other fish except the female he is choosing to mate and he will swim to her and nudge her then swim back to his cave or area in hopes she will follow to lay her eggs.
Actually, you need more females. With a one male, one female arrangement, the male will wear her out and kill her. Two females and one male is better. But four or five females and one males is best. Never put more than one male in a tank with females. The males will fight and one or both will die.
I am surprised that the breeder did not share this information with you during the sales process.
Catch 'em. Turn them over. One hole at the anus is a male, two holes is a female. Can't have to two or more males in the same tank.
