Cross breeding fish?

hey guys,

i have a pair of clowns in my tank as well asa a humbug damsel and a yellow tailed blue damsel.

tonight i saw the blue damsel lieing in the substrate and wiggiling its tail really fast kicking up the sand. this wenty on a while, it kind created a hole

then i noticed the humbug and blue damsel swiming close together, sometime on thier sides, up and down the tank. this went on for a few minutes..

whats going on here? can different fish breed with each other? is it a territory thing? and how can we explain the digging?

it's all very cool to watch but i'd like to know whats happening.

thanks guys

I have a yellow damsel that does the same thing... I think it is an aggression thing...

that was my 1st thought then when the humbug got invovled, then they both go and hide then come out and the blue damsel diggs a little more. and rubsits self on the humbug, and some of the LR

thanks mate
