    so normally my female clown just beats up my male night and day, 24/7. The first month or 2 of being beat up, he would lay on his side and vibrate, thus submitting. Fast forward until now, he’s been getting beat up the past year and a half, and he fights back a bit now, rarely submits. Just now, however, the female is getting super wiggley. Not quite as twitchy as the male submitting, but close. She will go parallel to the heater, wiggle wiggle wiggle, go to the rock, wiggle wiggle wiggle, go up to the male, wiggle into him. Does anyone know what this behavior means? I’ve been feeding them a ton, so I hope they have babies soon. I don’t see the ovipositor yet, so I’m kind of stumped at this behavior

    Sounds like she is getting ready to spawn.

    Maybe. They are still acting kind of funny today. I’m not ready to raise fry yet anyways, but I still wanted to see the eggs
