 Hi  Lawrence,  
 Thats  the  first  time  i  saw  something  like  that  in  the  last  4-5  months  since  i  started  my  cichlid  tank.  
 was  thinking  that  these  could  be  a  male  and  a  female  Surprised  .

 That  can  be  said  'public'  actions,  not  at  all  private  Chuckle  
 
 Fighting,  marking  territories,  digging,  etc  thats  all  done  with  their  only  tool(their  mouth)  Razz.

 Balashark,
 
 I  guess  your  question  wasnt  answered.  Actually  this  is  not  what  it  looks  like!  At  least  not  what  you  think  it  is,  if  you  are  thinking  what  it  means  if  two  humans  did  that!   ROFL  
 
 Liplocking  is  common  in  cichlids  and  is  usually  done  by  cichlids  when  two  males  want  to  fight.  They  are  probably  fighting  over  something,  maybe  a  female,  a  territory  or  something  else.  
 
 No,  this  is  definitely  not  love,  its  war!

 When  the  lip  lock  started  in  my  texas  tank...  two  of  them  were  shown  a  path  of  no  return  by  the  alpha...  realised  later  that  their  fight  was  over  the  lone  gal  in  the  tank....  so  you  better  start  keeping  a  watch  for  these  private  moments...   Smile
