Paradise fish

2 of my paradise fish keep sort of circling each other.
Does anyone know what it means?

Are they being aggressive at all? Is it a male and female? It's hard to tell from the pics.

It looks like it might be an aggression thing but I'm not totally sure. I don't know of any exact way to sex paradisefish other than by size and finnage, and those don't have very long fins.

They might if they are actually fighting. I've kept a few males together without any problem except when one got a mate and started spawning.

I'd just keep watching for aggression, if you see one bullying the other (pinning in the corner, etc) or getting beat up at all then you will have to move one out.
