Recently bought 10 guppies fron same shop. Very young female guppies.

Added them to 180l tank with other guppies and few mollies.

Notice that the new guppies are sometimes swimming in pararell, with both heads touching. ? why this strange behaviour.

Is it courting or protecton behaviour. Does anyone know.

Hey jeves,
What you have is the females showing dominance to one another and neither are backing down so they end up parallel swimming. I breed guppies and this is usually what you will see in the males not the females but it does happen. I hope this helps you!
