I often see my largest redbelly, which is about 7" in length, moving gravel with his lower jaw, like a bulldozer. (S)he's the only one who does this. The others are just 4-5" in size, and as far as I know reds are not yet sexually mature at that size, so I'm kinda puzzled why (s)he does that.
Does anyone know what's up with him/her? Is (s)he just horny (there's no territorial behaviour, though), or is there another explanation?

Another question: I don't know wheter the fish I'm talking about is a male or a female. Is anyone able to see it, judging from these pics?







Anyways, thanx in advance

Well, thanks for all the compliments guys (and girls
)!!!

Innes, I would be seriously dissapointed if my reds didn't like the way I aquascaped their tank. Put so much time, effort, and money(!!!) in it, and this the way they thank me ???


Anyone else got an idea about this?

Yeah, he might be horny, but the strange thing is that the other reds are not sexually mature yet (they're all smaller), so why would he bother (I guess he can sense that his tank mates aren't ready for spawning yet).
