The female is showing her pink belly at the male, she shivers in front of him, bent with the belly forward...
I don't know how the male is supposed to react?
Sometimes he chases her, nips at her a bit (not really aggressive though), and other times he just ignores her.

Are there other signs that they would be breeding?

I only have them for a few days, so there's no hurry, but I was just wondering...

Hi,

There is a page with a load of very good krib info here.

Sounds like they could be getting ready - don't be too surprised if they don't succeed with the first brood or two as they sometimes take a while to get used to everything.

HTH, Eddie

thanx!

very good site

They are very young anyway, about half adult size I think
so it could indeed happen that it doesn't succeed the first times

but there's no hurry, have to get rid of the livebearer fry first :)
