Cool display. "tail beating" and "gill flaring" are classic ways to let the other know who is bigger....

It's like, "feel that wave of water from my tail? Think you can handle that?". Saves the energy that would be used in fighting. Problem is, even if the other fish takes the message to heart, he has nowhere to escape to in an aquarium.

I thought i would post update on situation...............
My green terror has started fighting back.They are swimming in circles,then they lock lips for couple of seconds with GT having a short chase after con and then he turns around and starts flaring at him.


p.s I wonder how long this battle for dominance will last?.

they will probably fight till one dies. a 35 gallon is too small for those 2 fish when full grown and the fighting will only increase as they grow
