Hi every­one,

Thought I’s share this video of my Sen­tangs doing courtship dis­plays.

The inter­est­ing part is the female dis­plays which are less talked about than the male dis­plays.



I’m not very good at edit­ing I’m afraid. I won­der if any­one else has videos like these.

Cheers,

Mike

Mike, you are fully right in say­ing that we nor­mally look for the males and do not do the same for the females. Yes, this is a mis­take. One of the con­se­quences is that we are very bad in rec­og­niz­ing female licorice gouramis. They seem to look more or less the same, but that is wrong. Admit­tedly, they are much more dif­fi­cult to be dif­fer­en­ti­ated from one another, but at least in about half of the species it is pos­si­ble. Still more inter­est­ing is the female behav­iour in dis­play and courtship. So your video is a valu­able help in cor­rect­ing our modes of look­ing at these fish.
Thank you!
