Hi I'm completely new to cichlids and I have a couple of electric yellows around the 5cm mark anyway I've noticed some odd behavior going on and would like to know what there doing- they puff up there faces and gills with there fins up an circle each other- does anyone know what there doing do males or females generally do this.

Hope the lights are out, sounds pretty X rated to me.

Or if you prefer, probably male and female breeding behaviour, or territory fights. If they are shaking in front of each other, then breeding...

Once they sort out they ranking (order in the tank) then the sub-dominant will avoid or run away from the dominant one, unless you want to see them fighting all the time if that the case then change or re-arrange all your ornaments/rocks completely everytime you do water change, you will see them fight again over territory because they think it is a new place.
