lol, my two girls have been dancing around each other a lot lately. I love to just sit there and watch them swim around but they're really starting to crack me up with this.

Here's a very short clip of them "bickering" as I didn't know how much of a vid would work on here.

I love how Kinao slaps Goldie in the face and then swims away like "pfft, please..."

They're not hurting each other, are they? Hopefully the aggression stays silly and not serious.

No they're not hurting each other but Goldie looks like she's trying to mount Kinao. They swim around each other all the time, nothing serious.

Thanks Steve. Goldie is 4" and Kinao is 3.75". They're currently in the 90g tank I re-did but I'm already getting the materials to build their 500g tank I drew up. The only thing I'm debating on right now is whether to do a metal stand (which I don't like metal) or wooden stand (which would require some serious reinforcement). Either way, it's pretty exciting :)

Sounds like a great project! My brother made my stand out of tube steel... it's incredibly sturdy. Perhaps a local steel smith can make a simple stand for you.
