Mated Mandarins did first "dance"

I was at work but Melissa thought something was wrong.

It was on top of the other one for a while then start gyrating all around it with it's fins all the way out, and the other one just watched it.
I was at the office and missed it.

ouch .. u just remind me how i watched my baby mandarin die, got sucked in the powerhead and crashed into 2...my wife got tear everytime i talk about it with her.She was the one found out first. But yeah actrually if they did breed, try have some dead coral or life sps which they can hide in,don't wory about those crabs in acro, cuz as i can see, mine crab didn't bother the tiny fish at all. in fact, the fish use the crab as some kind of protector.

If I can find the babies I will put them in the fuge since it is predator free and try to feed them etc. With the size of the tank finding them will probably never happen.

yeah it will be mrical to find it, I didn't see the baby fish till it was 1 inch long. Actrually mandarin itself is hiding in the rock, by hiding i should say they are running around in rocks try to search for food, so same as their baby.
