"Shivering" behavior in kribs

I sort of a hav a related question about kribs behavior:

Do you ever see them "shiver"? It really looks like they're shivvering, they don't do it constantly and usually do it when in close proximity to each other (M and F). Dunno if they're just playing or showing their stuff or what but it looks like they give little short quick shivers.

It's mating behaviour. Cichlid shimmy I like to call it.
