Clownfish epileptic attack...

I have two wild clownfish in my QT, been there for almost two weeks, and today for the first time I noticed the smaller one doing a sort of epileptic attach and the other approaching it. I know I've seen them do this in the LFS tanks just wondering what it is? Is it normal? Mating behaviour? Although I think they are too young for that...

Steve

Sounds like mating behaviour

mmm true love by seizure? XD

From what I read, males can mate really young. While females have to be bit older and bigger.

That happens with my clowns all the time immediately after feeding. If the male gets a piece of pellet before the female (who is much larger) then she chases him around. He gets upset and then he becomes a macho man.

It also happens when they want to breed as well.
