Was just going to say that, males are capable of mating all day, every day no matter what. Females are the only ones who go into heat.

Sometimes males get those stripes as well to show submission to other males.

Haha that's interesting almost like humans ;) he's really jumpy should I be worried about that? Like putting my finger against the tank scares him and he swims in a panic and then calms down out of no where. Also he flares at the girls. Not directly looking at them but it seems like he's showing them the side of his body. All his fins are spread out and his gill covers or whatever are flared out really big. Sometimes it looks like he beats his tail too. What is this fancy ritual? I have ideas but I don't want to assume what it is.

Or sometimes he'll just float there with his fins spread out and won't move

Gyarados, one of my females, looks like she's trying to get through the glass to get to him. She seems to be the alpha in my sorority so I don't know if its aggression or interest.

If shes flaring, then it could be aggression, but if not then she might just want to find out if hes a possible threat
