What could be more exciting for an aquarist than seeing a pair of fish spawn or finding a mass of eggs in the tank? When eggs or babies appear, someone new the game may have lots of questions and concerns about what if anything they need to do for a successful hatch or to raise the fry. Typically conditions must be favorable clean water, ideal spawning chemistry, ect. More often fish are sexually isomorphic, meaning males and females are virtually impossible to tell apart visually. Once the fish were placed in your tank and made themselves at home, you may have noticed that two fish seemed particulary friendly, swimming together or camping out in a favorite area of the tank. You may have also noticed one fish swimming around the other, shaking or performing some other little dance for the other that was noticeably different from typical swimming and hovering…this was probably the male fish courting the female, enticing her to spawn with him.
