Lip locking Angelfish

Post  RichS on Sun 25 Aug 2013, 11:29

Excuse my ignorance, but there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer on the web - or not one i've found anyway.

I have 2 young (golden & a marble) angelfish in with 2 older, much larger black angels and the smaller golden angel has started kissing/liplocking with one of my larger angels. Is this a territorial/dominance thing?

In common with many cichlids angels do, on occasion, indulge in lip locking. This can be both male to male dominance/aggression or male/female bonding.
In my experience, once they've sorted out who the boss is, things will usually settle down after a day or so.

I have 2 doing this, I'm hoping they're forming a pair, he has plenty to fight with and keeps picking on the same one..... fingers crossed
