Question Yellow Labs and Red Zebras ready to breed?

I noticed tonight that one of my yellow labs is digging a pit in the gravel in the corner of the tank. Also, it and one of my red zebras are occasionally twitching like crazy, some sort of display to the other fish. Is this a sign that they are getting ready to breed?

That's a sign that the male wants to breed. Doesn't always mean the female will follow. If you see that, followed by the male and female swimming in a tight circle, chances are she accepted.

Cool, thanks. Frankly I'm not even sure if there are females in there, I don't know how to tell with YLs and RZs.

The easiest way to tell is when you see one holding a mouth full of fry.
